In-Kind Donations

One way to help the people in our programs is to donate items, otherwise known as, making an in-kind donation. To run our shelters and programs, we need many of the same types of items you do in your home. Please contact LeAnne at (714) 993-5774 x1003 to see what items we currently need most. If you/your group is interested in doing a drive for items we need most contact Rick Ponce, Communications Director, (714) 880-8232, rick@his-oc.org. If you would like to donate gently used items, please bring them to our thrift shop, Charity’s Closet. We appreciate your kindness and generosity in donating to HIS-OC.

Grab your friends, family or co-workers and organize a drive! It’s a fun, interactive way to do something good for people in need and a great example to set for our children. If you have any questions about hosting your own donation drive, please send a message to Rick Ponce, Communications Director, (714) 880-8232, rick@his-oc.org.
