In-Kind Donations

Community Lodgings appreciates all donations from our generous supporters who provide needed items for the families we serve. In order to make the best use of our limited storage space and to ensure that families have access to the most urgently needed items, we have created the in-kind donation guidelines detailed below. If you have any questions, email kkittrell@community-lodgings.org or call 703-549-4407.

Donation Guidelines

Community Lodgings will only accept non-asset donations that fit in one of the following categories:

  1. The item can supplement Community Lodgings’ current office supply, cleaning supply or program supply needs.
  2. The item can be used by an active or planned program at Community Lodgings.
  3. The item is listed on Community Lodgings’ Amazon Wish List.

If you would like to donate an item that is NOT on our Amazon Wish List, please fill out the Donation Form below  to request donation drop-offs or pick-ups. The donation must be approved before we are able to accept it.

In an ongoing effort to best utilize your gifts, we are UNABLE to accept the following:

  • Used plush furniture or bedding (i.e. mattresses, couches, pillows, etc.)
  • (Typically) Donations that need to be picked up outside of a 25 mile radius from our administrative office: 3912 Elbert Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22305
  • Used clothing
  • Used plastic kitchenware (cups, plates, bowls, utensils, etc.)
