Donor Recognition

We have the most amazing donors! It's very difficult for us convey all of the special recognition each one deserves. We can only say "thank you" for allowing us to be an extension of your kindness to the poor.


The work we do to enrich the lives of guests would cease without our volunteers! We welcome you to partner with us:

Item donations

We have a constant need for donated items including toiletries, laundry soap, new socks and new underwear, and gently used shoes, blankets, jackets, pants and shirts. We don’t currently need bars of soap – we have a lifetime supply in our storage unit!

Our Thanksgiving wish list could use some help right now - please consider chipping in by bringing some of the following over to Dorothy's Place, Monday-Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. between now and Thanksgiving.  We'll no doubt be serving about 1,000 dinners in our annual miracle of Thanksgiving!
