Where to Donate Stuff

donate stuff
To assist in meeting the material needs of people living in poverty in the local community, our parish organizes several donations drives each year. Below is our schedule of drives:

  • Food for Catholic Parish Outreach (Feb. & Sept.) and Our Lady of the Rosary Parish (May & Nov.);
  • School supplies (August); and
  • Christmas gifts for families in need (December)

Many parishioners ask where to donate used clothes and household items during other times of the year. If we know of families or organizations with particular needs, we will post that info on this page.

Below is a list of selected organizations in the community that are happy to accept donations of excess “stuff.”
