The DDSC is always in need of: clothing (particularly new socks, undergarments and shoes); new hygiene items such as toothbrushes and toothpaste, soap, shampoo, shaving supplies, lotion, deodorant, first aid kits and more; and books and games and activities for our common area. The DDSC also relies on donated items to fill a clothing closet for men and women, which includes seasonally-appropriate clothing, outerwear and shoes. All gently-used clothing donations must be dry-cleaned.

Donations of non-perishable food items that don’t require refrigeration or cooking, snacks and beverages are also accepted. Food items must be pre-packaged or individually-wrapped.

All donations may be dropped off at the Downtown Day Services Center, 1313 New York Avenue NW, Lower Level, Washington DC 20005 between 9am-4:45pm on weekdays.

We also maintain an Amazon wish list of items you can buy directly and have shipped to our facility. See below.
