Rainbow Place

In Kind Donations

We are so grateful to all of you for your generous donations. Thanks to you, Rainbow is fully stocked with clothing and toiletries.

Please check out our charity wish list on Amazon Smile to easily order items needed at the shelter and save yourself a trip. Let us know when you place an order as they usually don't contain the name of the donor, so we don't know who to thank. Please be sure to login to Smile.Amazon.com and designate Rainbow Place Shelter before you place your order.

The shelter could also use monetary donations for general operating expenses and to use as needs arise.

  • 50-60 gallon clear indoor trash can liners - URGENTLY NEEDED
  • Hot drink cups - URGENTLY NEEDED
  • Disposable salad/dessert bowls - Running low
  • Umbrellas - None left
  • Underwear - S, M, L, XL - out of most sizes
  • Sweat Pants - all sizes - nearly out
  • VTech cordless phone (extra handset only to ensure we don't miss calls)
  • Warm, lined, waterproof gloves
  • Computer monitors

The list above is updated regularly. Please call before bringing donations so we can be sure someone will be available at the shelter.

Approximately 30% of our annual budget comes from in-kind donations.

Monetary donations are used for facility maintenance, staff funding, to purchase food, paper, cleaning products, shelter supplies, postage stamps, and bus tokens.

Gift Cards to Costco and Staples are always helpful and appreciated.

There are many other ways to donate to Rainbow Place.
