Contribute Goods

Our donation center has been temporarily overwhelmed by our communities generosity. THANK YOU!!! We need time to process the donations we have received and organize our center. We will re-open our donation center for new and gently used material donations on February 1st. Thank you for your understanding as we take the time to organize and ensure the donations we have received are put to the best use.

Alexandra House is a secure facility as our participant safety is of the utmost importance. Therefore, we are unable to accept unscheduled donations. You must schedule a donation appointment to ensure staff members are aware and ready for visitors to the shelter. Unscheduled donation drop-offs will not be accepted. For donation inquiries or to schedule an appointment, email or call 763-795-5473.
