STEP VAN DONATIONS PAGE

How can you help the homeless?

Every week, throughout the year we distribute these items to those we serve on the streets alongside our Mobile Resource Center outreach. This is one of the ways we encourage individuals and corporate entities (churches, youth groups, civic groups) to be involved in serving the poor and how they can help the homeless here in New York City. We ask that you would consider sending as much as you are able to. If there is something that you would like to donate that is not listed here, let us know. We have received many creative donations through the years.

Contact Us for the address to send your donation. If you would like a tax exempt receipt, please list the items in your donation (i.e. 120 bottles of shampoo, 160 bars of soap, 27 T-shirts). We appreciate your help and so do the poor and homeless that we serve. Please note: any used clothes must be freshly washed and in good shape before being donated.

Currently the most pressing needs are: men’s socks and underwear, toothbrushes and winter gloves.
