Donate Items to Help the Homeless

The Homeless Task Force rotates recipient organizations several times a year. We are currently collecting donations for House of Hope, an organization which is part of the Family Tree organization. House of Hope is dedicated to providing safe shelter and resources for homeless women with children.

All donations should be new and unused. They are interested in receiving baby supplies (diapers and baby wipes) and personal hygiene items (shampoo and conditioner; body wash and lotions; toothbrushes and toothpaste; and hairbrushes and combs).

The shelter itself needs cleaning products, detergent, toilet paper and paper towels

Bins are located in the front entrance of Hamilton Middle School on the second Sunday of each month.
