St. Patrick Center needs you during this pandemic.

Operations at St. Patrick Center’s 800 N. Tucker location have resumed.
 We’re very grateful for all that you give to us as we provide essential services to people who are homeless or at risk.

Beginning  Monday, July 6, 2020 – we will begin accepting clothing (summer items needed) and other gently-used items. We are not able to accept furniture, electronics, large appliances, children’s bicycles, and used mattresses. Items are accepted at the discretion of St. Patrick Center staff.

A monetary donation will help create some certainty and normalcy for people who need it most. Donate online here.

Provide needed food donations, including casseroles, food pantry items and sack lunches to distribute. View our food donations wish list list here.

Can you sew? We are in need of handmade masks to assist with our efforts.

Donate sanitation and personal protective equipment (PPE) supplies to protect front-line workers and people who are homeless. View our Sanitation Supplies and Personal Protective Equipment wish list here.

We are in need of personal hygiene items such as deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, Depends, toilet paper, and tissues.
