Ways to Donate
Donate your "gently used" clothing or ask your church, company, school or other organization to host a clothing drive. Clothing and shoes are always needed for men, women and children. Small household items are also needed. Here you can find a complete list of what you can donate to support our clients. We have placed donation bins at various locations throughout WNY. See our newsletter, On Our Hearts, for more information, or visit our Bin Finder to locate a bin near you.
Stocking our Mobile Soup Kitchen and Hearts Harvest Food Pantry takes a lot of non-perishable goods. Either donate food individually or ask your church, company, school or other organization to host a food drive for Hearts for the Homeless®. Please call our office, (716) 877-3536, for a comprehensive list of our most critically needed food items.
A simple way to give back to the community is a monetary donation, made online. Your donation will help fund our Mobile Soup Kitchen as well as our newest community project, Hearts Harvest Pantry and Café. Your financial donation directly impacts the clients we serve and allows us to carry out our mission of feeding and clothing “the least of these.” You can donate with a credit card online or email us to donate with your PayPal account.
Give Through Your Employer
A variety of employers support Hearts for the Homeless® through payroll deductions. In fact, some companies will even match your charitable donation. You can give to Hearts in a one-time or recurring donation by automatically deducting the amount through your paycheck. Supporting Hearts for the Homeless® in this way is quick and easy; your recurring support makes a large impact on those in need. Check with your employer and H.R. Department to see if they participate.
