Wish Lists for Each Program

Lists are updated regularly and are very complete. Consequently, we may not accept items that are omitted from the list. For more information about your in-kind donation, please call Katie Gordon at 907-222-7340 or email at

For items that we cannot accept, please donate to Goodwill and let them know it is on behalf of CSS. They will weigh your donation and for every 200 pounds of goods donated, CSS receives clothing vouchers for our clients. This allows our clients to shop and chose items of clothing that best fit their needs.

If we receive items that are not on these wish lists, they will be donated to Bishop’s Attic or to Goodwill. We must dispose of all unneeded/unusable items, taking funding from our services and programs.

Furniture Donations

We try to provide our clients with a bed and furniture items when they are moved into stable housing. Due to storage limitations we are unable to accept walk up furniture donations. To donate furniture, please contact Katie Gordon at or (907)222-7340 to coordinate your donation. Please understand we may not be able to accept your donation if we do not have the space or need at the time of your call. Thank you for your understanding!
