In-Kind Donations

Our Standards of Excellence

HIAS PA is only able to accept new or gently used items that are clean and in good and working condition.  We do not have the capacity to clean or fix items. Consider: Would you give this item to a loved one?

In-Kind Donations

Visit our list of items we accept and don’t accept.

We do not have the capacity to pick up items. Items on our accepted list get dropped off at our community drop off location in Wynnewood.

If your items match our needs, please contact for donation drop off information with the subject line “Household Goods Donation”.

Please email this address in advance of any drives or collections on behalf of HIAS PA.

Organize a Donation Drive for HIAS PA

We need at least 2-3 community partners per month to host donation drives to meet the urgent material needs of our clients. Our community partners include local businesses and professional groups, religious communities, book clubs, student groups and more. We would love to add you and your group to our list of partners.

Drives focus on collecting the following donations:

  • New & gently used household items
  • Seasonal items, including winter coats/outerwear, space heaters, box fans
  • Welcome Kits: assembled packages of hygiene items, cleaning supplies, safety items, kitchen items, or school supplies
  • Collecting gift cards and funds to donate directly to HIAS PA

Drives can be organized in-person and virtually. Please reach out to if you are interested in organizing a donation drive.
