Essential Goods for Basic Needs Donors

Through the Essential Goods for Basic Needs Program, United Way of Westchester and Putnam facilitates donations of goods from businesses and retail partners to local nonprofits, who then make these items available to those in need within the community.  

This program is focused on essential, basic items such as baby items, books, bedding, clothing, electronics, holiday gifts, home goods, personal care items, and school supplies.


Donations that are new, high-quality, and large in scale will provide the most impact to our partners.  

If you are an individual looking to donate used furniture, please contact Furniture Sharehouse: (914) 834-1294, or a local nonprofit partner or house of worship for clothing or other household items.
