Your donation has a concrete effect on what we can provide. While we value and accept all donations, cash donations are of the greatest assistance. Some things cannot be paid with in-kind donations such as utilities and staff. We also purchase supplies in bulk so that each dollar purchases more supplies than at retail cost. Every dollar you give goes directly to supporting the patrons of the Urban Rest Stop. A gift of:

A gift of $2500 will buy a year's worth of clean coveralls for clients to wear while washing their clothes.

$1,500 will provide a month's worth of clean towels.

$1,000 will pay the water bill for one month.

$750 will pay the gas bill for two months.

$500 will buy 30 days worth of laundry soap.

$250 will buy 2,000 toothbrushes.

$100 will buy 32 weeks of toilet paper.

  • Books, magazines and comic books in any language
