Help with In-Kind Donations

Sometimes, it’s the little things that matter most. A travel-size shampoo, a new pair of socks, a bottle of water, or a jar of peanut butter can help someone who is living on the streets or has been newly housed. We appreciate your generosity and willingness to help meet our clients’ basic, critical needs. Beyond the gift itself, it helps our clients to know that there are people who care about them and want to help.

There are numerous ways to assist SEARCH and our clients with in-kind donations. Whether you donate these items yourself or organize a drive at your school, church, synagogue, or place of work, your in-kind donations make a meaningful difference in our clients’ lives.

Prepare Sack Lunches for our Clients

SEARCH relies on volunteers to provide approximately 300 sack lunches each week for our clients. These sack lunches are primarily distributed by our Mobile Outreach Team to individuals who are living on the streets. Oftentimes, that sack lunch may be the only meal they have that day and is what keeps them from going hungry.
