Donation Drives

Every item donated ensures more resources for our kids.

From our founding day in 1950, Boys & Girls Haven has relied on the generosity of our community to provide for the physical needs of the children and young adults in our care. Every item donated ensures we are able to put more money directly toward the healing, education, and enrichment our kids need to grow and thrive.

See below for some of our most needed items. We also have seasonal drives (Winter Gear, School Supplies, etc.) Please feel free to contact us at with any questions about ongoing or seasonal drives.

As a note, we can only accept NEW items for our young people. We cannot accept used clothing, sheets, blankets, or household goods at this time.
