When Your Life Fits In A Backpack

For our homeless clients, a backpack or bookbag means security. It means the ability to carry around the things you own and treasure with a higher sense of security.

All of our clients are looking for sturdy, adult backpacks. If you would like to organize a collection of backpacks for our clients, please contact our In-Kind Coordinator at 202-503-1533 or [email protected].

Donating Through Our Amazon Wish List

Don’t have anything to donate, or don’t know what to provide us? You can help us get exactly what we need by buying items off of our Amazon Wish List. Just don’t forget to include a note with your name and address so we can send you a thank you letter!

Dropping Off Donations

Unfortunately, we are not able to pick up donations. But you can bring things to us at our location in Columbia Heights Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10AM – 12PM and from 1-4PM. Before you come, please give us a call at 202-503-1533 to let us know to expect you! If you are unable to get to us during normal operating hours, we would be happy to talk about setting up a more convenient time for drop offs.

Don’t Know What To Donate?

If you aren’t sure what to donate, or want to have the maximum impact on our clients, consider donating financially. Your financial donations give Thrive DC the flexibility to help clients no matter the need or situation.
