In-kind donations are critical to our neighbors in need who would not otherwise be able to access them. Consider hosting a drive to help collect these personal care items for families and individuals in need.

Host a Drive

Before hosting any type of drive, please contact or 401.277.4346 to learn more about our current needs.

Consider hosting a donations drive on behalf of Crossroads to collect personal care items, home goods, kitchen supplies, gift cards and more to help your neighbors in need as they move into housing and emergency shelter.

Oftentimes, when a person moves from the street into shelter or housing, they have very few personal belongings and lack the means to purchase the essentials to care for themselves and settle into their new space. Your drive will allow them to have the supplies they need to find success on their path to ending their homelessness.

Examples of in-kind drives include: welcome home kits, back to school supplies, food drives and holiday drives.
