Donation & Empowerment Center

Hands Across the Bay is happy to provide the following Items in our Donation Center:

Clothing, Kitchen Supplies, Towels, Sheets, Pillows, Blankets, Hygiene Items, Diapers & Baby Wipes, Household Cleaning Supplies, Some Furniture, Nonperishable foods and more! 

The Donation & Empowerment Center allows families and survivors we assist to “shop” for basic necessities they need and get back on their feet, all at no cost to them! We are blessed to have partnerships with other nonprofits, including The Kind Mouse to supply our food pantry and BabyCycle to help us provide baby necessities.

We are happy to have space to provide empowerment classes(yoga, planting, social gatherings, painting and more) monthly for the families we assist to meet and gather. If you are interested in hosting a special class, we would love to have you!
