The HER Shelter is currently on a temporary hold off from accepting general used items such as clothing, shoes, household goods, etc. to prepare for our annual Gifts of Joy Christmas Program.
If choosing to support the families at HER this Holiday season regarding in-kind gifts, all items donated will go directly towards the HER Shelter Gifts of Joy event, where clients will shop for free from all community donations for their children and themselves for Christmas. Thank you to all who support our clients during this time. You are appreciated!
Starbucks is hosting the HER Shelter Angel Tree this year! Stop by any participating Starbucks location in the file listed below, choose an ornament from the tree, shop and return the gift to the same Starbucks location by December 9th.
The HER Shelter Amazon Wish List will be Christmas based throughout the Holiday season for all who are hoping to give in this manner. All gifts purchased from the HER Amazon wish list are sent directly to the HER Shelter office.

We ask all donors who give via Amazon to fill out the virtual receipt form in the link below:
Hold a donation drive by collecting Christmas gifts for children, teens and adults. Once the items have been collected, the gifts can be delivered to Central Baptist Church - 1200 Hodges Ferry Road, Portsmouth VA 23701 on Wednesday, December 15th or Thursday, December 16th between 10 am - 4 pm. *Although the list in the file attached gives suggestions, we will accept anything that will be considered a gift for a child, teen or adult. Our only requirement is for all gifts to be brand new for the HER Gifts of Joy Christmas program.
The HER Shelter is currently also still accepting:
• Items that are considered essential to shelter life (Listed on the Donation Requests List in the page below)
• "Special Requests" that are posted on the HER Facebook page when a resident or child is in urgent need of a particular item
For all questions regarding in-kind donations and/or Holiday involvement, please email our volunteer coordinator at Summer@hershelter.com.
