Help Us Supply Food & Hygiene Kits for Our Community Members
Tips & Tricks: While we have provided a detailed list, bulk items work great (such as donating a case of one single item on the list). Donated items can be dropped off at our community center from 9am-6pm.
For those more interested in donating cash or paying for items without dropping off, we encourage you to order items online and have them shipped to our location. If you would like to make a cash gift to this effort, please donate to OUTMemphis.
We are not currently accepting clothing, furniture, or home goods, due to hygiene concerns.

Perishables are certainly needed so that our community members have access to fresh items. We ask that you do not donate more than 1 weeks quantity at a time, so that we do not have to throw away any overflow. Contact us at any time for clarification on needed perishable items that day.
Assembled meals or foods (such as sandwiches) are only accepted from restaurants or other food-safe businesses.
