Presbyterian Night Shelter gladly accepts donations of new and gently used clothing, household items, toys, toiletries and furniture. Items may be dropped off any day of the year between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. (for contactless drop-off, bring your items between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.) to 2400 Cypress St., two blocks south of East Lancaster – the last building on the right. Please call 817-632-7401 once you enter the parking lot and someone will assist you with your donation. An in-kind donation receipt is available upon completion of digital form at drop-off. As we are limited in our capacity to pick up donations, only donations that are in great need or great bulk will be considered for pickup.
Presbyterian Night Shelter’s signature event, the Home for the Holidays Gala, is a magical and memorable evening of dinner, dancing and more – but the impact extends far beyond the event, helping us to provide our guests with comprehensive services that move them along on a journey to self-sufficiency.
