for your interest in donating items to help the families we work with start new
lives after fleeing abuse. At The Redwood, we are committed to providing women
and children with the highest quality support and services. When our staff and
volunteers are sorting and distributing donations to the women and children of
The Redwood, we always ask ourselves one question: "Would I feel
comfortable wearing or using this item?". We hope you will consider your
contribution with the same caring eye.
**Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our donor community, our limited
storage space is currently close to capacity -- this means we are only able
to accept items from the needs list below:
The Redwood is currently accepting the following items:
