Toiletries - Camp Hope guests take showers in our mobile Shower Trailer. Commonly needed items for our guests are soap, lotion, shampoo/conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine products, razors, child/adult diapers & wipes, laundry detergent, etc.
Food - We always need packaged snacks, coffee & fixings, pancake mix & syrup, instant oatmeal, etc. As refrigeration storage is limited. We are always able to receive food donations that require no refrigeration, heavy cooking or preparation. Donations of disposable cutlery (forks, spoons, knives)
and paper goods (plates, bowls, napkins, paper towels) are always appreciated.
Is there anything you don't need?
We typically don't need clothing or furniture due to limited storage at our campsite. However, we always need new undergarments and for winter we need cold-weather clothing (see list below). Keep in mind, our staff may turn away donations not listed below, as storage is limited.
We do NOT typically pick up donations due to limited staffing, however donations can be dropped off 24 hours a day at the office right inside the gate.
