Individual Donation of Goods

  • In-Kind Gift

The Red Cross is typically unable to accept small, individual donations or collections of items such as clothing, food or cleaning supplies.

The cost to sort, package and distribute these types of donations to disaster victims is almost always greater than the cost of purchasing the items locally, and it is logistically impossible to distribute a wide variety of individual items in an equitable way.

While we cannot accept the donation of an individual item, you can support your community by donating these items to an organization that is equipped to put them to the best possible local use, such as the Salvation Army and others.
