Donate Essentials

Wellspring hosts four donation drives each year to support the high volume of need for particular items for homeless children and parents.  

Each year, we rely on the support of thousands of donors to ensure that children and families in crisis have access to the essentials they need.  

We invite you to participate anytime throughout the year by donating an item, and/or expanding your reach by hosting a donation drive!  

Current Needs

We are currently accepting items for our Fresh Start campaignIn addition to helping homeless families locate and maintain housing, Wellspring provides essential items that all families need to stay healthy once they’ve moved into their new homes.

You can help families in crisis experience a Fresh Start by:

• Making a financial gift

• Shop online with our wishlist.
• Hosting a donation drive
• Inviting your children to fill a Kids Helping Kids coin jar
