Small household items are also needed. We have placed clothing bins at various locations throughout WNY.

Host A Bin
Hearts for the Homeless® makes donating space for a donation bin very easy. Hearts for the Homeless keeps the area around the bin clean, free of graffiti, and shoveled in the winter. Donation bins are fully insured, making them worry free for business owners. When a bin is full, Hearts for the Homeless® will empty the donation bin within 24 hours.
The Hearts for the Homeless® school fundraiser helps to teach the school and community the importance and impact of recycling. Like cans, bottles, paper, etc. recycling textiles is beneficial for the environment. For each pound of clothing, shoes, and blankets donated, Hearts for the Homeless donates $0.03 back to the school. These funds can go into a school's general fund or a specific club/team. As requested, Hearts for the Homeless will also come into the school and give presentations, as well as, provide assistance if needed for events.
