Easy & Smooth Process to Accept Donations

PADV has many opportunities for you to get involved in the advancement of our mission to end the crime of domestic violence and empower its survivors. 

In-kind Donations

In-kind donations are essential to our shelter and supportive housing services. However, our space is limited, so please review and follow our policy to make the donation process smooth for our organization and you.

Please Do

  • Contact staff to determine if the items you would like to donate are needed and can be accepted. If we are unable to accept your donation, we will do our best to direct you some of our community partners.
  • Schedule All Donation Drop-offs With Our Staff. Individuals Are Not Allowed at Our Locations Without Making Prior Arrangements, and We Are Not Able to Accept Any Donation That Has Not Been Coordinated With Staff
  • Donate Brand New or Very Gently Used Items
  • Donate Only Full-size Toiletry and Household Items
  • Complete an in-kind Donation Form. It’s Required if You’d Like a Tax Acknowledgment Letter, and It Helps Us Keep Up With Donations Received. You Can Download the Form Here

We Cannot Accept

  • Clothing That Is Unwashed, Torn, Stained, Faded or Marked With Inappropriate Words or Pictures
  • Used Socks or Undergarments
  • Travel Sized Items
  • Large Quantities of Items Without Pre-arranging With Staff

Cell Phones

Donate your used cell phones to PADV--working or not. Some will become emergency phones for domestic violence victims, and the Shelter Alliance will recycle others. PADV will receive funding to support our programs and services for every phone we turn in to the Shelter Alliance.
