Your contribution is vital to our mission.

Your contribution is vital to our mission.

Many Lazarus House Guests rely on the Ministry for food, clothing and household items so they can pay rent and utilities to stay in their homes.

Below we provide our community of generous donors with click-to-care lists from Amazon, Walmart and Target, and lists for needed food, clothing and household items for drop off at our Main Building at 412 Hampshire Street or our Thrift Store at 229 South Union Street.

Thank you for your generosity and heart in helping us serve our Guests!

Urgent Needs for Our Guests

We often have urgent needs for our Guests, including personal items, clothing, toiletries, and during this Coronavirus crisis, food!

Please “Click to Care” using one of the wish lists below and have your donation shipped directly to Lazarus House Ministries.

We would love for you to include the optional gift message with your email or address, so we will then know who to thank. Remember to print a receipt for tax purposes.

If you prefer to have your donation picked up

We have recently partnered with ReSupply, a veteran-run organization. ReSupply will pick any donation for a fee and deliver it to our store (there are no restrictions on what you can donate when using ReSupply). This new partnership will help us redirect the thousands of dollars that have traditionally been spent on staff, trucks, maintenance, gas, sorting donations and disposal to programs that impact the lives of our Guests.
