Donate Items

Your gift-in-kind donations help Haven of Rest meet the needs of poor and homeless men, women and children. Donations should be taken to Haven of Rest’s donation drive-thru at the rear of our Client Services Center at 207 East Market St. in Akron. The donation drive-thru is completely covered from the elements. Drive-thru hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.– 6:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  The drive-thru is closed Sunday.

PLEASE NOTE: Check the attached Needs List or call the Donation Center before bringing it. Haven of Rest has limited storage, and there are some items we are unable to use.  For more information, please call or email Jonathan Iaconis, Clothing Coordinator Interim at: 330-535-1563 or by email
