Donate Now - Active Wish List

Our shelters are the only homeless and domestic abuse shelters in Fond du Lac County, and we operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This requires an incredible amount of resources, right down to the most basic necessities.  We accept donations of a variety of goods and services, including food, new and gently used household items, and gift cards.  All donations can be dropped off at our administrative office or any of our shelter locations.  

Additional opportunities to donate are:  Baskets of Hope (accepted all year) and
12 Months of Humanity (‘Wish List’ item of the month) or our Items of Immediate Need (updated regularly).
