Food + Items

Food and Item Donations

Out of an abundance of caution Lucy’s Hearth is unable to accept our normal donations of clothing and household goods at this time.

Please call us if you have any questions: 401-847-2021

We are grateful to everyone who has already reached out to ask how they can help families at Lucy’s Hearth! In order to provide an up to date list of needs, we have created an Amazon Wish List. We are asking our community to please join alongside us in our efforts to enact precautionary measures to combat COVID-19. Thank you in advance for showing care & compassion for our families during this time at Lucy’s Hearth. View our Amazon Wish List.


Food & Item DonationsWe accept donations of new and used clothing and household items, as well as new, unopened non-perishable food.  We can only accept perishable or prepared foods from a commercial (licensed) kitchen.

Due to limited space and staff, items are accepted Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We can only accept the equivalent of 2 large trash bags worth of items per donation.  Please be sure your items are in a bag or container that you can leave with us, we are not able to transfer belongings into alternate containers at the time of donation.

During the holiday season, we temporarily stop accepting regular donations.


For Thanksgiving, we would appreciate gift cards for turkeys, canned goods,  stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy and pies.

For Christmas, we assist current and former residents through the Adopt-A-Family Program.  Each family writes a “wish list” that is provided to a generous community member or group.  During the week before Christmas, donors bring gifts to Lucy’s Hearth and staff and volunteers wrap and distribute presents to our many needy families.  For more information about adopting a family, please contact us!

Food: We accept canned goods and non-perishable food, as well as prepared food and fresh vegetables and fruit. If you are planning a food drive for Lucy’s Hearth, please call us first. Canned food donation Please work with us to plan ahead!
