An easy way to help the women and children of Abby’s House is to donate an item on our needs list. For the safety of both donors and staff during the current Coronavirus pandemic, we’ve updated our policies and procedures around in-kind donations. Please read below for more details.
We are accepting in-kind donations, but have put temporary policies in place to help protect both donors and staff. The best method for in-kind donations is to order items online and have them sent directly to Abby’s House (52 High Street, Worcester, MA 01609). If you plan to drop off items in-person, please contact Jean Anger () to schedule a drop off time. Once a time has been scheduled and you arrive to drop off your donation, please bring the items inside the doors and place them on the cart that’s located at the right-hand side of the lobby. Reception staff will be there to welcome you and assist you with any questions. Please keep social distancing practices in mind and remain 6′ from any individuals.
At this time we are only able to accept brand-new, items. For information regarding donations to our Thrift Shop, please visit our Thrift Shop page.
Please note that we are unable to accept donations of furniture and used baby/children’s items. Every purchase you make through Amazon Smile benefits Abby’s House!
