Due to storage concerns, we are not able to accept other clothing, coats or shoes.  Please take these donations to the Belmont Clothing Center, or Hinton Avenue Clothing Closet, where our guests are able to obtain clothing free of charge.

Kitchen Needs:

The Haven serves breakfast only, every day of the year.  We appreciate donations of fresh fruits & vegetables, whole grains, local eggs, cheese, breakfast meats, white & brown sugar, maple syrup, tea & coffee, pecans and almonds, coconut, as well as mugs and water glasses.  We regret that due to storage issues, we can NOT accept donations of canned or boxed dry goods.  

As we prepare most of our breakfast meals from fresh ingredients, the few canned goods we need we get from the local Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

Move-In Kits: 

Please review our gift REGISTRY and consider creating a move-in kit to help newly-housed Haven guests feel at home. Here's what it should include: Non-perishable food (pasta, veggies, cereal, etc.), cleaning supplies (sponge, soap, all-purpose cleaner, etc), toilet paper, trash bags, sheets/pillow, clock radio and can opener.
