Please consider donating items of need at our event to UMOM as well!

  • Nonperishable food items such as these, to help feed the homeless street-bound youth we serve: jars of peanut butter and jelly, granola bars, breakfast bars, fruit cups, pudding cups, pop top cans (no can opener needed – ie. Vienna Sausages, Chef Boyardee), peanut butter or cheese and crackers in individually wrapped packs, microwavable mac n cheese, cup o soup, ramen, etc.
  • Diapers in sizes 4, 5, and 6: Our children sadly tend to stay in diapers longer due to the trauma both they and their parents have faced.
  • Twin and full size sheet sets and blankets: the beds we have in our shelter rooms are twin and full size.
  • New packages of underwear for women (bras, too), men (boxer shorts), and children.
