DONATE FOOD, CLOTHING AND OTHER ITEMS TO HELP HOMELESS
When you donate food, clothing, toiletries, furniture or appliances to help people who are poor and homeless, you’re showing love by meeting practical needs.
The Mission accepts donations of canned and boxed food items, fresh produce, turkeys/hams, livestock, homemade goods, and extra food platters from your special event.
Donation of non-expired goods are accepted anytime at the front desk or at the kitchen door (side parking lot) during business hours.
The Mission accepts men’s, women’s and children’s seasonable clothing, boots, shoes and household items (sheets, towels, kitchenware, etc.).
All out of season and old/stained clothing will be baled for Mission income. All clothing is given to people in need in our community without charge.
Regular size and travel size shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body wash, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes are a constant need.
Furniture and appliances in good working condition will be accepted if they can be transported to the Mission. Please call Matt before coming (518.858.8096) so someone will be available to assist you. From October through December, we will not be taking furniture donations as we use the storage area for our Christmas gift giveaway. Sorry for any inconvenience.
The Mission will transport donated livestock in our trailer from the farmer to a USDA inspected slaughterhouse. The farmer is given a tax-deductible receipt for the animal’s market value.
The quartered, stamped USDA meat is transported to the Mission’s butcher shop where the meat is prepared by our chef. It is then served to poor and struggling neighbors in our community.
HUNTERS! The Mission also accepts deer or bear.
TO DONATE AN ANIMAL, call Perry Jones at 518.427.8144
We are also now accepting REFUNDABLE bottles and cans. Proceeds benefit our services and programs at the Mission.
Vehicles in running condition are accepted. Please call 518.462.0459 x 227 to donate a vehicle.

Monday – Saturday:
8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
After hours drop-off, clothing and small items accepted at the front desk.
We have moved across the street to a bigger facility in 95 Trinity Place. This has allowed us to distribute even more clothing to our struggling neighbors in the community and is making the process of receiving donations easier and more efficient.
DROP-OFF AREA IS BETWEEN TRANSITIONAL BUILDING AND RED WAREHOUSE (see diagram below)
