Material Donations

Your generosity during the holidays helps families we serve who are affected by domestic and/or sexual violence. The Holiday Giving Program allows you to give in a way that works best for your family or group. Together, we can make the holiday season a little brighter for those who may be facing challenges.

Donate to "The Gift of Choice" and we will purchase gift cards on your behalf based on our current needs. 


Scheduling your holiday donation drop off ahead of time helps us to coordinate our volunteers and expedite drop-off!


If you are unable to drop-off during the scheduled drop-off dates and times or if you have additional questions, please contact Mildred at (315) 425-0818 x 2210 or send her an email

Vera House Wish List

We appreciate the generous donations from members of the community that help us to make our emergency shelters comfortable living spaces for individuals and families in crisis and transition. In order to best meet the needs of our shelter residents and accommodate our storage and transport limitations, we ask that donated items be NEW (some may be in "like new" condition - please consult the detailed list below).

Where and when can I drop off my donations? Donations can be dropped off at our Administrative & Outreach Offices, 723 James St., Syracuse, NY 13203 Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.

My company or community group would like to do something for Vera House. What do you suggest?  One way you can help support Vera House is with a donation drive. View our wish list for suggestions on items you can collect/donate to support Vera House.

Do you accept gently used items?  Vera House accepts some gently used items as noted on our wish list, but we no longer accept used clothing or furniture items. Vera House partners with the Rescue Mission, who provides vouchers for clothing and household items for the individuals and families being served by Vera House. We are thrilled to work with the Rescue Mission to streamline our donation process and best serve the needs of the community. Please consider donating your used clothing and furniture items to the Rescue Mission to help support this wonderful collaboration. For a complete list of Rescue Mission drop-off locations, click HERE.

Do you accept donations for the holidays?  Yes! Each year during the holiday season Vera House asks for assistance from the community to help our clients have a happy holiday. We ask for donations of new, unwrapped gifts for our shelter residents, advocacy and outreach clients. If you are interested in supporting Vera House during the holidays, please check back in the fall to view our Holiday Wish List. 

What if I have additional questions?  If you are looking to donate an item not listed on our wish list or if you have additional questions about our in-kind donations program please contact Maryann Wood at (315) 425-0818 ext 2234 or click HERE to email her.
