In-Kind Donation Information
Donations of goods and services are essential to AWAIC. We serve hundreds of men, women and children every year that are in need of a variety of items. The lists below are updated frequently depending on current needs and shortages. We ask that donated items to AWAIC be in good usable condition. Items that are broken, dirty or stained cannot be accepted because we cannot pass them along to the people who use our services. We must then pay to dispose of them. Also, we have very limited storage space due to our shelter being over capacity. We respectfully ask that due to our limited space, you refer to our immediate needs donation list below:
