Donate Items or Sponsor a Collection Drive 

When you donate items or sponsor a collection drive, you are providing much-needed items for the children and families in our care. Household items are used to stock our transitional housing units and clothing is made available to our families for free in our resident store. Items not needed for Vision House residents are either sold in our Thrift Store or sold to Value Village – all proceeds are used to support our families with services such as counseling, case management and child advocacy.

It’s easy! Simply drop your donations off at one of our bins (click on graphic above to view a map of our bin locations) or at our Furniture Warehouse and Donation Center in Renton during our donation drop off hours (details below). Or contact us to arrange another time to drop off your donations: 425-228-6356 or info@vision-house.org.
