Food and Item Donations
Due to limited space and staff, items are accepted Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Weekend donations are by appointment.
Before dropping anything off, we ask that you phone us at 401/847-2021.
If you are interested in adopting a family, or learning about wish lists or the names and ages of the children we serve, please give us a call!
For Thanksgiving, we would appreciate turkeys or preferably gift cards for turkeys, fresh vegetables (potatoes, squash, celery, green beans, corn), stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, pies, nuts, olives.
For Christmas, we assist current and former residents through an adopt-a-family program. Each family writes a “wish list” that is provided to a generous community member or group. During the week before Christmas, donors bring gifts to Lucy’s Hearth and staff and volunteers wrap and distribute presents to our many needy families. For more information about adopting a family, please contact us!
Food: We accept canned goods and non-perishable food, as well as prepared food and fresh vegetables and fruit. If you are planning a food drive for Lucy’s Hearth, please call us first. Sometimes our shelves are full, and there is no more room. Other times, though, we really need food donations! Please work with us to plan ahead!
Furniture: We always need beds, dining sets, bureaus, bookcases, end tables, and, often, sofas. Furniture must be in good condition.
Towels: We are always looking for donations of towels!
Small appliances in good working order: Toasters, microwaves, mixers, and coffee pots.
Clothing: We can only accept small amounts of seasonal clothing for women and children.
