Ways to Donate Items

Due to a project to upgrade the spaces our victims use, we will need to temporarily stop receiving donations on Wednesday, October 11.  We will resume accepting donations on Tuesday, November 14.  We will not be able to accept used clothing for the remainder of the year.  Thank you for your patience as we improve our services to victims of intimate partner violence.

House of Ruth Maryland could not support the many women and children who seek help every year without the generous donations of clothing, supplies, food and many other items we need.  Click here to see our Donation Guidelines.
