Make an in-kind donation

SVDP could not support the many individuals who seek our help every year without the generous donations of clothing, supplies, food and so many other critical items. Donation drives conducted by local offices, social groups, clubs and other organizations are vital to our success. The residents in our care will benefit from your generosity.  If you are able to conduct a donation drive, below are the some of the items especially needed.
