Donate Items

In addition to financial contributions, the agency is often in need of donated items to meet the basic needs of the clients we serve.
Please contact our donation line at (805)781-6401 ext. 260 to inquire whether we have a current need for large furniture items or household appliances you are seeking to donate.

Unfortunately, our agency does not have enough storage to accept new or used clothing. Instead, we suggest taking your clothing items to the below local locations. We offer our clients vouchers to these sites to purchase clothing as their need emerges. Additionally, we can never accept donations of used toys due to safety concerns. Thank you for your understanding.

The Women’s Shelter Program is in dire need of a vehicle to assist in serving our residents who stay at the Safe House. The staff need a vehicle that will transport residents to our confidential location & to and from court, etc. We are seeking a vehicle, preferably a van that can seat 6 to 8 passengers with relatively low mileage
(20, 000 to 50,000 miles) and a possibility of fold down seating to accommodate those with mobility equipment.

If you would like to donate a vehicle to the WSP Safe House, please contact our donation line at (805) 781-6401 ext. 260. Thank you!
