New Shelter Donation Hub to Open February 1

donation hubHumility of Mary Housing, Inc. (HMHI) will serve as the donation ‘hub’ for all Humility of Mary agencies including Humility of Mary Shelter effective February 1, 2017. All donations that we previously received here at Humility of Mary Shelter (HMSI) at 1016 W. 5th St. Davenport will now only be received at Humility of Mary Housing (HMHI), on 3805 Mississippi Ave. in Davenport [MAP].

Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. At this time, we are only able to accept donations during these hours, as this is when we have staff available to accept them and sort them out. We encourage those who are unable to come during these available hours to partner with someone else that is donating, or wishes to donate, and have them bring your items with them.

By creating a central hub we can provide all our donors one convenient location for donation drop offs. This will save agency staff time and create some much-needed space for program expansion here at Shelter.

Donation Hub Needs

helpWith the expansion at Shelter and ongoing needs at Housing we anticipate a tremendous shortage of furniture in the coming months. We need small couches or loveseats, 2-4 seat dinette tables with chairs, nightstands, chest-type dressers, microwaves and table lamps. If you have any of these items to donate, please bring them to HMHI donation center.

A monetary donation of $144.00 can purchase a bed for a person experiencing homelessness. Donations can be made online on our website, by mail or by taking them to the Shelter or the new donation center. If you mail or take a Shelter donation to the administrative center or donation ‘hub,’ be sure to indicate that you intend it for us at Shelter.

We also accept donations of adult clothing, dishes, pots and pans, towels, sheets, pillows, accessories, etc. Please see this list on our website for a complete needs list.

If you have any questions, about donations, contact Patti Trapp, the Volunteer Coordinator at Humility of Mary Housing, Inc., 3805 Mississippi Avenue, Davenport IA  5280 or phone 563-326-1330. Thank you for your ongoing support!
