Food Pantry and In-Kind Gifts

We also accept in-kind donations, which allow you give tangible items rather than cash donations that benefit the clients we serve. We accept in-kind donations to support several areas:

  • Food Pantry 
  • Silent auctions 
  • Support a client for the holidays: Individuals, corporations, churches, and civic groups can adopt a Damien Center client or family during the holiday season, providing gifts that will help make a happier holiday.

To donate to the Food Pantry, contact Melissa Pohlman at 317-632-0123 ext. 261 or mpohlman@damien.org.

We are always in need of new and unopened hygiene or toiletry items, including:

  • Laundry pods
  • Dish soap (small bottles)
  • Shampoo/conditioner
  • Lotion
  • Paper towels
  • Toilet Paper
  • Bar soap
  • Body wash
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Deodorant
  • Razors and shaving cream​
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes
  • Hygiene/disinfectant wipes
  • Ziplock bags

When you generously donate these items, we are better able to spend more money on food, increasing nutrition and variety for our clients. Of course, food donations are always encouraged and welcome. If you wish to donate food items, please consider the following:

  • canned fruits
  • Ensure (TM) (or other nutritional drinks)
  • small, healthy snack items
  • soups
  • other non-perishables (canned fruits or vegetables, boxed items, etc.)
