Make a Donation of Necessities

Many youth enter our doors needing the basics — food, shelter, and clothing. The Hetrick-Martin pantry provides clothing, toiletries and other necessities with your help. While all donations are welcome, the clothing and toiletry items listed below are those that are most needed.  Specific pantry needs can also be purchased online & delivered to HMI by clicking here.

Donations can be dropped off in person at 2 Astor Place, 3rd Floor, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. We ask that donations be dropped off in securely knotted bags, and that clothing be separated from shoes and accessories. If you have made a donation and need an acknowledgement letter for tax purposes, please direct your request to Laurence Johnson (ljohnson@hmi.org).
