To Donate Items to ICCS

As we are limited in our storage space and ability to process donated items, we are unable to accept every generous gift that our community wishes to share with us at this time. There are other organizations in the community who are better equipped the manage donations such as used clothing, linens and furniture. These organizations, including the Salvation Army, work very well with ICCS to ensure that our clients can get access to the items that they need, when they need them!

Below is a list of items that we are currently accepting for each program, as well as how to connect with us regarding these items. This list will be updated frequently as our needs change, so please check back often.
