Important note about donated itemsDue to COVID-19, we are currently able to accept donated items only if they are new and in their original packaging. Thank you for keeping our community safe!

Thank you for learning more about donating items to UMCH! While we welcome donated items, we need to ensure that they are in good working order and applicable to our programs and services. We are grateful for your support and generosity as it allows us to put our mission into action.

Before making a donation of goods, please call or email Latasha Wallace to coordinate your donation. To be totally candid: sometimes we receive donations that we are not able to use. Occasionally donors share items that we then have to pay to dispose of, or it costs us more to have them fixed. We want your donation to be put to good use to help those in our community!
