About In-Kind Donations
Thanks to the in-kind donations we receive, UGM-TC is able to set up nearly 30 households a month! Individuals and families are given a “move out package,” containing essential items to establish their home such as pots and pans, dishes, cleaning supplies, and furniture. Occasionally, we must clean out our donation warehouse of the non-necessities to make room for new donations from our generous supporters. All donated items that are not able benefit our residents may be sold through our annual events or through our online market to raise money that goes directly towards programs at UGM-TC.
Starting 12/18/23, we will begin receiving donations at our new warehouse, located across the street from our Lancaster location. You can bring your donations to the warehouse Monday through Friday (9:00 am – 4:00 pm) at 2400 N Kentucky Avenue.
