We DO NOT accept women’s and children’s clothing at this time. Check here for a list of our friends who also accepts in-kind donations.
Interested in organizing a donation drive at your office, school, church or party? We would love your support in helping us fill the needs of our guests.
A few things to remember when you do a donation drive:
-Keep it to a limited time frame (1-2 weeks) to keep people interested
-Advertise, advertise, advertise
-Focus on 2-3 key items (our monthly focus items are perfect)
-Make sure to let our In-Kind Donation coordinator know!
If you’d like to keep a permanent box at your office/church/school for donations, it’s a wonderful idea. Just make sure it is clear as to what donations you are accepting.
We are open for deliveries Monday through Friday ONLY between 6am and 5pm. We are closed on the weekends. You can also ship your donations to: Miriam’s Kitchen, Attn: Jen Dean, 2401 Virginia Avenue, NW Washington DC, 20037.
We cannot pick up any donations at this time.
For more information, materials or ideas, please contact Jen Dean, Volunteer and In-Kind Donation Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 202.452.8926 x221.
Thank you so much for your support in making sure our guests’ most basic needs are met each day.
We couldn’t do it without you.
