NOTICE: We are not accepting donations of pre-loved/used items at this time due to the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Per CDC guidelines for “Donations of Clothing and Items to Homeless Services Providers”, all donations must be sanitized upon receipt before handing out – CCEH simply cannot wash every single donated item due to limited bandwidth and just one washer/dryer that our guests need to be using. The good news is that we have PLENTY of winter clothing and items to meet our guests’ needs thanks to all of the previous generous donations. THANK YOU!

DONATIONS OF BRAND NEW CLOTHING ITEMS ARE WELCOME! FOR HOW TO SCHEDULE YOUR DROP OFF, LOOK —>


*NEW* Visit our MyRegistry.com Wish List for links to exactly what we need!

We’ve created a new Wish List for items we are in need of here at the Resource Center and Shelter. This list will be kept up-to-date and you can see how much of each item we are hoping for. There is a Category of items specific to providing services during COVID-19.

HOW TO PURCHASE ITEMS FROM THIS REGISTRY:

  1. Click on “View or Buy This Gift” button next to the item on the list below.
  2. A new window will launch and prompt you to create a MyRegistry.com account; just click the “I don’t want to provide my info” at the bottom if you don’t want to create an account.
  3. You will then be taken to the item’s page at the online store where the product is available and you can purchase the item(s).

Please note that you can certainly purchase these items from your preferred stores if you want, and arrange a time to drop them off at our daytime Resource Center located at First Church Concord, at 177 N. Main Street (entrance off of Washington St.). See instructions for dropping items off on the right-hand side of this page…
