What Can I Donate to Transitions LifeCare?

Categories: The Volunteer Perspective, Uncategorized

As the holidays approach, our Transitions LifeCare staff often receive questions about what items can be donated to our organization. We are so appreciative of those who go out of their way to donate homemade or purchased items. Below is a list of items that Transitions LifeCare does accept, and we are always happy to provide you with an in-kind donation receipt. 

 

Items we can accept:
  • Crochet/knit blankets.
  • “Busy” or “fidget” aprons for patients with cognitive impairment.
  • Snacks/bottled water for visitors at our Hospice Home (individually wrapped breakfast cereal bars, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats, chip variety packs, cookie assortment, fruit flavored snacks, nuts, etc.) 
  • Comfort Kits for families at our Hospice Home: a small bag with items such as individually wrapped snacks: granola bars, peanuts, oatmeal packets, hot cocoa, gum, hand lotion, lip balm (non-petroleum based), tissue packets, pads of paper and pens, soft socks. No highly scented items or religious materials. 
  •  Homecooked or catered meals. Our families at the Hospice Home deeply appreciate meals while they stay with their loved ones. Please reach out to volunteer@transitionslifecare.org to learn more. 

We cannot accept used medical supplies but can suggest local agencies that will receive those.  

Transitions GriefCare would be thrilled to receive art supply items to be used in Expressive Arts programs for grief support. Check out their Amazon wishlist.
