In-kind Contributions

As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, NECHV accepts certain in-kind donations of food, clothing, supplies and equipment. However, throughout the years we have curtailed our list of accepted items as we no longer have the manpower, space and resources to process large drives, clean-outs and other large scale donations.

Please be assured that this new system ensures that every Veteran we serve is able to access clothing and other items needed.

Used Clothing, Shoes, and Household Goods

The Center is not able to accept any used clothing, shoes, household goods or other items.

New Clothing, Toiletries, and Household Items

On occasion throughout the year the Center issues a list of items needed for the Veterans we serve. Please call the Center to for a copy of the Needed Items list before embarking upon a donation.

Clothing and Toiletries Drives

Please contact the Community Support department before embarking upon a drive so that we may ensure that your charitable intentions are met and that we are able to coordinate the acceptance and distribution of your donations to the Veterans we serve.
