Donating Goods and Services

Clients often come to us with little more than the clothes on their backs. Please see below for a list of guidlines that will help someone building a new life for themselves and their families.

  • Items for donation, except Harriet's Closet donations, should be new and/or unopened; for personal care items such as shampoos and conditioners, full-sized bottles are preferred.
  • Please keep in mind we cannot accept certain used items and are unable to pick up or deliver items due to our limited resources.
  • Items brought in for donation with more than $500 in total value need to accompanied by an itemized list for tax purposes.
  • Tubman does not accept clothing or play equipment for infants and children. 
  • Due to space constraints, please limit the number of boxes/bags brought in. Items that our clients cannot use will be donated to partner organizations to benefit others in need.
  • For Harriet's Closet donations, please make sure they are professional and/or business casual clothing.

For questions on specific donations, please call 612.825.3333.

Harriet’s Closet

Harriet’s Closet accepts donations for ALL GENDERS!

Harriet’s Closet is our volunteer-run boutique where people can shop for up to 3 outfits per month at no cost. Your gift of new or gently-used professional or casual clothing, shoes, and accessories, will help women, men, and youth of all sizes feel confident as they interview and begin employment, or attend court proceedings.

Harriet's Closet does not accept clothing or items for children or infants.

Items should be current, seasonal, clean, and new or in good repair. Periodically, we look for similar items for youth of all genders. Please call 612.825.3333 or email to ask about our current needs.
