Community Collection

Organize a food drive to help provide essential canned goods and paper goods. E.g., canned vegetables, starches, condiments.

Other items needed include: travel-sized toiletries, new hats, gloves and scarves for the colder months (gently used coats accepted) and school supplies, sporting equipment and games for the children in our youth programs.

Involve your neighborhood, school, religious organization or community group in your collection efforts!

Show you truly care by preparing sandwiches for guests at our Soup Kitchen. Takeaway sandwiches can provide evening or weekend meals when our Soup Kitchen is closed.

Love stirring up something yummy for others? Call ahead and make arrangements to bake, cook, sponsor or deliver a meal. Your efforts make a difference!


A Good Night's Sleep

When our homeless clients come to us, most have very few possessions. From the minute they enter our shelter, we aim to give our clients a fresh start, beginning with a safe, clean space to rest their heads. Help restore dignity by ensuring all of our clients are able to have brand new single bed sheets, pillow cases, blankets, towels and wash cloths.


Move-In Ready

When our clients move out of our shelters and into their new homes, many do not have the essentials. As they begin their journeys to self-sufficiency, you can help make a house a home by creating custom move-in baskets containing basic household necessities such as plates, silverware, towels, sponges, etc.


Gala Galore

Our annual Oasis of Hope Gala may be in the spring but we are always looking for items for our Silent Auction! The items you donate will help generate funds to support our mission and restore hope to Westchester County’s men, women and children in need.
