Now that the holiday season is over, it’s time to sift through your pile of gifts. Every year we get presents that we absolutely love, and those that we might be able to do without. Along the way, you’ve probably collected some gift cards that you know you probably won’t use. Instead of letting them collect dust in your junk drawer, re-gift them to the clients at Carpenter’s Shelter!

Gift cards are an invaluable resource for us at the shelter. They allow us to buy gifts for the residential children on their birthdays, toiletries for our linen closet, work boots for clients with new jobs, or car seats for new mothers. Gift cards to places such as Target, Walmart, major department stores, and grocery stores allow us to meet the needs of our clients year round.

If you have gift cards you would like to donate, you can drop them off at the shelter, or mail them to

Thank you for thinking of us, and Happy New Year!
