On Monday Carpenter’s Shelter began participating in ACTion Alexandria’s Fall into Giving, a three week long donation drive.

From now until October 31st, help Carpenter’s Shelter and our clients get a head of the holiday season by shopping our wish list. Simply visit our Fall into Giving Donation Page and start shopping! Donations may be made either online from Amazon, or by dropping items off at the shelter.

The fall and winter months can be the most extreme, both in terms of the weather and our growing needs. The doors to Winter Shelter will soon be opening and we expect to be at capacity throughout the winter season. Items such as hand sanitizer, cough drops, and cold medicine are crucial to keeping our clients safe and healthy during the colder months.

Since we first opened our doors over 25 years ago, in-kind donations have saved the shelter hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. With the creation of our Amazon wishlist four years ago, the possibilities to give are endless. Anyone, anywhere is able to donate and make a difference in the lives of our clients.

Every donation is greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Liz Salter.
