ALIVE! Housewares Program assists persons in housing transition by providing basic housewares received from generous donors like you. Think about what you needed setting up your first apartment. Those are the same things our recipients need!
Contact Housewares with a description of the items you wish to donate and to schedule a time to drop them off at Fairlington United Methodist Church (3900 King Street).
Alternatively, you may drop off donations at the Sunrise Senior Living of Old Town front desk (400 N. Washington Street) daily from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Note that housewares appliances are not accepted at this site.
