IN KIND DONATIONS
There are many ways to give to New Friends New Life, including donations of physical goods or professional services.
New Friends New Life realizes that many people will want to donate clothes, furniture, or household items to our women and children. However, donations are often times difficult for us to manage with our staff and storage constraints. Therefore, we have developed a policy for clothing donations that will allow our donors to assist us to be good stewards of limited staff time and storage space.
If you would like to make a donation, please contact our Volunteer Manager, Melany Vargas - MVargas@newfriendsnewlife.org or 214-217-8653.
