Toiletry Donations

We give out more than 100 Personal Care Items a day at Thrive DC. We need help supplying soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors and more. Click here to see how you can help Thrive DC with toiletries.

Clothing Donations

While we are unable to accept size specific clothing donations such as shirts, pants, suits, and dresses due to limited storage space, we have a desperate need for ponchos, socks, and underwear. See how you can help with our #1 priority need.

Backpack Donations

Backpacks are one of the most vital donations our clients can receive. Many of the people we serve keep their whole lives in their backpacks, and need things that are sturdy, portable, and inconspicuous. Click here to see what you can do.

Winter Clothing Donations

From October 1st through the second week of January we collect warm winter clothing for our city’s most vulnerable. You can help our clients stay warm during the winter by donating your used coats, hats, gloves, and scarves. Click here to help!

Feminine Hygiene Product Donations

Women are uniquely vulnerable when they’re homeless, and face challenges that men will never have to face. Having the necessary hygiene products shouldn’t be a luxury, it should be a right. Click here to help our women have the maxipads, tampons, and clean underwear they need.

Food Donations

Thrive DC serves breakfast and dinner to over 200 people each day, and provides groceries to 135 people each week. That’s a lot of food! We need your help to make sure we are providing our clients with enough fresh fruits and vegetables, protein, heart healthy grains, and shelf-stable necessities. Will you help us “Eat Right, Live Right?”
