Donate Goods

Our needs are great. Since most of our residents come to us with very little, there is a constant need to purchase personal care items for these families. We also need household items to maintain our house, and food to provide meals to our residents. We are NOT able to accept clothing, books, stuffed animals, toys or furniture.

Due to health regulations we can only accept items which are new and unopened, and not expired. Because of our limited storage space we are unable to accept donations of clothing, toys or books.

Donations can be dropped off at our community offices which are located at 2006 Bremo Road, Suite 201 (The Richmond Medical Park).  Drop off hours are Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, 10am – 3pm.  If these hours don’t work for you, we can make special arrangements.  If you have any questions, please call our office at (804) 249-9470 ext. 23 or email marisa@safeharborshelter.com.

Critical Needs for Safe Harbor’s Food Panty

We received some amazing donations to our food pantry over the holidays, but still have some critical needs for our clients, specifically:

  • Canned tomatoes or beans
  • Pasta and jarred sauce
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned tuna fish or chicken

Special Needs

Often our families arrive at our shelter with few resources and/or transportation. The following wish list items enable our clients to get to work and offer the opportunity to purchase needed items not readily available in our pantry.

Gift Cards

  • Kroger
  • Wal-Mart
  • Target

GRTC Bus Tickets

These can be purchased at Kroger Customer Service

Gas Cards

Things to keep in mind

  • We are unable to accept travel sized items. Travel sizes are great for weekends away, but many of our clients are making permanent changes and need full-size personal care items.
  • Before you take the time to make “gifts bags” of assorted items, please check with us to see what our needs are.
