The Chum Wish List is where we keep what we need most for each program. Donations can be brought to our administrative office at 102 W 2nd St from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. If possible, please sort your donations into separate bags/containers by item. We do not accept miscellaneous clothing items; kindly take miscellaneous clothing items to the Damiano Center or the Salvation Army.
Thank you so much for partnering with us and supporting our mission!
Check out our Amazon Wishlist to have items sent straight to those in need.
At the Steve O'Neil Apartments, we have a great need for transportation. The search for a passenger van to help families get to appointments, programs, and other important things has extended for over a year now. If you could help or want to contribute to this, please get in contact with us!

Please Consider Supporting Chum
There are many ways to support us! A gift of money can help us support all of our programs. A gift of time, through volunteering, can help us complete crucial projects. And donations of warmth, clothing, and shelter help keep folks living outside of shelter alive.
