Wellspring is a grassroots nonprofit organization with a very small staff, that derives support from donations, grants, and special events. Your donation of the following essential items helps us to continue providing services and programs to our community.

We are so grateful for your support!

Donations may be dropped off at Wellspring Women's Center Monday-Friday 8:30 am - 3:30 pm.

Things we cannot accept:

When items are dropped off from the list below, we have to process them, dispose of them, and/or get them to another charity. It is very taxing on our time and budget. Please help us and help other nonprofits in the region by only donating items that are requested and useful to those that we or they are serving. When we serve others, especially those who are suffering, living with homelessness, or needing to make a better life, we try to give them the best that we can and to care for them with things that we would want or use ourselves. Thank you!
