Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. Elizabeth Freeman Center is a 501 (c)(3) organization.  Elizabeth Freeman Center does not sell, trade, rent, or share donor contact information.


Families often flee violence with little other than the clothes they are wearing. We welcome the donation of items that our shelter and clients are regularly in need of, including diapers, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, new underwear, suitcases, and – come the holidays – gifts. Your contribution will help make a difference in someone’s life.

Unfortunately, due to covid-19 and our limited storage space we may not be able to accept everything. Please call  (413) 499-2425 if you would like to donate items and to find out if we can accept them. Thank you!
