Gifts of Goods and Services

**Due to health regulations, items can only be accepted if they are brand new, still have the tags on them and have never been used before**

Gifts in Kind

The families that 180 Turning Lives Around, Inc. serves often need basic items. Many times they arrive at our emergency Safe House with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Often in a domestic violence situation, access to finances is limited. Your generous support through a donation of material goods and products can help a family recover from violence and abuse sooner and help them find their independence.

Below please see our guidelines for accepting new materials along with our Donation Form to use when sending your items.

**We are grateful for all the assistance we receive, but due to limited space in our facilities, and to the changing needs of our clients, it is helpful if you contact us first before taking the time to make a purchase or organize a collection on our behalf.

Please reach out to: 

AMANDA (732) 264-4360 ext. 4231 .
