In-Kind Donations

Thank you for your interest in supporting COTS! We appreciate your support in providing some of our most needed items.

Currently, the most pressing needs for our families include: 

  • Body Wash 
  • Twin Sheets
  • Towels and Washcloths
  • Children’s Toothpaste
  • Crib/Toddler Bed Sheets
  • Liquid "Ready Feed" Formula
  • Enfamil Gentlease (for babies with sensitive stomach)
  • Gift Cards (Gas, groceries, clothing retailers, dining, entertainment, etc.)

Donations of these items are accepted Monday through Sunday, between the hours of 9AM and 6PM at Peggy’s Place – our Family Emergency Shelter. 

Consider ordering these items through to further support our purpose!

For friends who shop online, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total purchase (at no cost to you) to COTS when you shop through and select Coalition On Temporary Shelter as your charity of choice.

COTS appreciates donations of new or gently used clothing for men, women, and children. However, due to the generosity of so many kind people, we regularly experience Clothing Donation Overload! As a result, we will only accept donation of new or gently used clothing, shoes and purses on published Clothing Donation Days.

Donated items should be washed or dry-cleaned, folded, and boxed (NOT BAGGED) in order for us to receive them. Clothing donations should be limited to no more than two boxes at a time.

COTS reserves the right to decline receipt of items based upon the following criteria:

  • They do not match the needs of our program participants
  • They are out of season
  • They are not clean, folded or presented per the guidelines listed above
  • The item is one one that COTS already has in excess. 

​Clothing Donations Days are every third (3rd) Saturday of each month (Excluding December & January) between 10:30AM and 1:30PM. Clothing donations received outside of these times will not be accepted. 

Donations may be be delivered to:
