Donation drives are a fun and effective way for your company, youth group, club, or civic association to collect needed items such as children’s clothing, diapers, books, blankets and more, for the families we serve.

We can provide you with a list of needed items, fliers to advertise your drive, and an information sheet on how to collect and deliver items.

For more information on organizing a donation drive, please email Jennifer at

Tips for a Successful Donation Drive 

Spread the Word

Invite family members, friends, peers, and co-workers to participate, by email and on social media. Link your invitation to our Shelter Wish List, and online Donate pages.

Make it fun! Create a tally sheet or poster to track results.

Choose a Central Location to Host the Drive

Choose a central place to collect donations, that will be easy for your community to access. Please clearly mark donation drop-off boxes.

Include a jar for cash donations, and a sign asking for checks to be made to Family Supportive Housing.

Schedule Delivery of Drive Items

To schedule your donation drop-off, please email Jennifer at We are happy to schedule a Shelter tour for donation drive participants! Please let us know if you would like to arrange a tour.

Family Supportive Housing is located at 692 N. King Road, San Jose. Directions are available here.

Thank you for helping us to serve homeless families!
