  • Metro Cards – Our mothers have ongoing need for affordable transportation to get to child care, training locations and jobs. You can help by providing Metro passes and bus passes.​​

  • Diapers – Most children at Carrie Simon House are younger than 3 years-old. Diapers and wipes are always a huge need for our residents! Hold a diaper drive or community service baby shower.

  • Kitchen Collection – Help stock the CSH kitchen! We need kitchen sponges, plastic containers, aluminum foil, paper towels, kitchen towels, and cleaning supplies to name just a sampling of items.

  • Bath Collection – Stock our linen closet with new bath towels of all sizes and new sets of sheets (twin size). New pillows would be a luxury for our residents. Bars of soap, toilet tissues, and washcloths along with tubes of toothpaste would be a great addition.

  • Gift Cards – Cards to retailers like Target and H&M, and restaurant cards are welcome. We will distribute them to our residents in celebration of Mother’s Day, Christmas and the birthdays of our residents and their children.

  • Tickets for Special Events – Let us know if you would be willing to donate tickets for special arts or cultural events that you think our mothers might enjoy.
