clothing, Food, diaper donations

Oasis is a true resource for so many women in the community who don't have enough money to buy food, clothing, personal hygiene products, diapers, and other baby items for their family.


In fact, close to 50 other agencies in the City of Paterson and County of Passaic refer clients to Oasis for these items.


Please contact our In-Kind Donations Coordinator Wanda Cuebas via email or (973) 881-8307 x100 to learn our most current donation needs or to schedule a drop-off, preferably during the hours of 7:30am-3:30pm.


Please note: During the month of December, we are unable to accept used clothing, but welcome donations of coats, hats, gloves, and any new items.


Many thanks for your generosity!

CLOTHING

Oasis accepts donations of good quality, IN-SEASON clothing for women and children to serve the emergency needs of clients and referrals from other social services agencies.  Additionally, we always have a need for professional attire to support our Workplace Readiness Program.

To better help us organize your donations, please label all bags or boxes with its contents, e.g. women's size 10, boys size 8, women's professional size 12. Due to space constraints onsite, please be aware that overflow clothing items will be sold to assist us in funding our other programs.

FOOD
In addition to serving daily hot lunch to the community at large, Oasis also operates a food pantry. There we collect donations and create “food bags” which contain simple staples that are given out to women and children who might otherwise go hungry. 


You may choose one (or a few) of the items from this list and donate them in bulk (we’re always in need of peanut butter, for example), or you may donate food bags that you create yourself. These bags contain enough food to feed a family of four for about three days.

Please let us know in advance that you will be coming with a food donation.  We are grateful for your help!
 


DIAPERS AND OTHER BABY ITEMS
Many women come to us in need of diapers, formula, baby food, shampoo, lotion, and other baby items. In fact, we give these supplies out almost as soon as they come in!


There is always a special need for larger sized diapers.


It's easy to contribute diapers through the Jet.com "Give a Pack Program" where you can contribute money for Oasis to purchase diapers. Go to http://go.jet.com/give-oasisnj to make your donation.
