Imagine trying to pay attention in class when you’re hungry. Think for a moment what it would be like to show up for school or to work when you haven’t had a place to shower in a few days. It’s very easy to take things like food and basic needs for granted until they’re gone. That’s the reality that many of our youth are currently living in.

Face to Face spends upwards of $80,000 per year on supplies like underwear, diapers, shampoo, and more. This is money that could be put to use providing other badly needed services! Holding a supply drive, or simply donating items from our needs-list yourself make a huge difference.

Our youth have specific needs, please donate only items on our lists.

Buying supplies online and shipping them to us through one of our supply registries is a quick and simple way to donate. You can always be confident that what you’ve purchased will be put to use because the items are pre-selected.

If you’re not sure if an item should be donated, please contact Joa Sevlie, community engagement and volunteer coordinator, at
