In-Kind Donations

In-Kind Donations


To date, donations of furniture and house wares have provided each of our Saint Louise House families with a fully-furnished apartment to call home, the entire contents of which become theirs to keep.

With that in mind, we appreciate your donation of new and gently used items. When deciding whether or not to share a donation with Saint Louise House, use this simple litmus test – if you would consider passing your items onto family and/or friends, then they will most likely be welcomed at Saint Louise House.

If you are interested in scheduling a time to drop off home furnishings at our South Austin storage facilities, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@saintlouisehouse.org or (512) 302-0027.

Note: We do not pick up furniture or household items. Items must be delivered. 

Organize a drive or collection for Saint Louise House
We appreciate the efforts of our friends who provide in-kind donations of toiletries and household items. If you would like to host a drive, dinner, party or other collection of items like diapers (sizes 4, 5, 6), baby wipes, small bottles laundry detergent (HE and non-HE), dishwasher detergent, dish soap, baby shampoo, children’s toothpaste & children’s toothbrushes, Fabuloso all-purpose cleaner, kitchen sponges and new spray bottles, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@saintlouisehouse.org or (512) 302-0027.
