Families and individuals come to us needing items vital for health and life: food, toiletries, jackets, tents, sleeping bags, gas for a car to get to work – you name it, and we’ve tried to connect people with what they need to get ahead.
Previously, community members, churches, civic clubs and others generously ran donation drives to provide basic need items for us to give away.
Please do not stop by the agency to drop off items without checking in with us first. For the safety of our clients, staff and donors, our lobby is closed.
For safety of donors and clients, we now prefer to purchase what people need rather than accepting donated items. Donations of items requires safety protocols, and staff time to inventory, valuable storage space. Your cash donation helps us be efficient, to put your dollars to work for the greatest immediate needs. It helps us get what someone needs when they need it. Go to www.CommunityActionSkagit.org/donate to find how to make a donation by mail, phone or online.
On a case-by-case basis, we may be able to accept the following items. Please contact us at VolunteerCenter@CommunityActionSkagit.org to find out about current needs. We can also let you know if donation drives or other ways to help are currently available.
Current Items we MAY take:
- Diapers, Baby Blankets, & Homemade Baby Hats
- Hygiene items (soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.)
- New or gently used tents, sleeping bags, blankets
- New or gently used warm and waterproof coats
