Food & Product Donation Update-Fall 2023

Donations from the community are welcome and appreciated.

If your organization or group is interested in holding a donation drive for Safe Harbour, before you start contact Barrie Ann George, Vice President of Development and Communications. She is happy to provide you with Safe Harbour logos and information as well as the most current needs of our residents. You can also confirm the best day/time to drop off your donations. Due to our limited storage space, we try to stagger the intake of significant donations to give us time to organize and distribute them to our residents. Thank you for your cooperation!

We currently do NOT accept toys, stuffed animals or clothing donations, we encourage you to donate clothing to Community Aid**.

Donations may be dropped off by appointment only.

Simply call 717-249-2200, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., to set a time to deliver your donation to our location at 102 West High Street, Carlisle.
