Best Places to Donate Clothes and Household Items in Long Beach
When moving from your old home to your new residence, everything can’t always go with you. If you’re ready to part with items you don’t need, consider donating them to these worthy causes.
Women Shelter of Long Beach
Domestic Violence Resource Center
4201 Long Beach Boulevard, Suite 102
Long Beach, California 90807
The Women Shelter of Long Beach is dedicated to serving victims of domestic violence. The organization has a 24-hour domestic violence hotline and provides women and their children with emergency supportive housing.
The shelter accepts gently-used clothing, household items, non-perishable food and canned goods, as well as school and office supplies. To view a full list of items needed go to the site’s "Donations" tab and select "Agency Wish List."
To help women whose lives have been affected by violence transition back into the community the agency provides supportive services like case management, therapy, supportive groups, peer counseling, legal and health advocacy, life-skills building, and housing assistance.
Because men are victims of domestic violence, too, all of the agency’s emergency shelter and domestic violence resources are available to them as well. Free supportive services are also available to children and youth victims of domestic violence.
