Needs List and Unacceptable Items
St. Vincent Needs List
On average, we shelter nearly 400 men, women and children every day. Guests receive clothing, personal items and three meals a day. Donating personal items is a great way for groups or individuals to help ensure guests’ needs are met. The Needs List is provided below and is updated on a regular basis. Please check back here to see what is most needed.
Amazon Needs List (Amazon Wish List)
In addition to our regular Needs List, you can find a counterpart Needs List on Amazon. Purchasing on Amazon allows your brand new donation to be shipped directly to us, no extra effort!
Although this is a fairly comprehensive list of items that we do not accept, there are always exceptions to every rule. NOTE: We cannot accept furniture or bedding with visible rips, stains, tears or pet hairs. All donations are picked up at the discretion of the drivers. If you ever have any questions or need to schedule a pickup, please contact the St. Vincent de Paul Community Store Call Center at 937.425.0592. Thank You!
