EVERY DOLLAR IS ESSENTIAL! Donors are the lifeblood of Sharing life. Without your generous giving, we could not serve the most vulnerable among us: Children, families and senior adults. When you give, you help us feed a child dinner so they don't have to wait until the next school day to eat, provide utility assistance for those trying to decide whether to eat or pay the electric bill, help a young adult get their first nursing certification so they can begin a new career to provide for themselves and their families or help a senior adult with food and clothing so they can use their very limited funds to purchase much needed prescription medicines. These are just a few of the ways you can empower us to serve those in need! We appreciate your willingness to give! Please click the link below to give online.

How to donate FOOD, NON-FOOD and household items

​Sharing Life accepts certain tangible items such as canned and boxed food items, soaps and shampoos and clean, gently-used clothing items. As a way to help you guide whether or not your clothing item is gently-used, when we place clothes on our racks, we ask ourselves if we would wear them. If not, then we know our clients will not want to wear them either.

Below is a list of items we are able to accept. If you don't see your item listed below, please contact us to find out if we are able to take your item. If not, we recommend:

Mesquite Social Services Thrift Store (972-285-3000)
Goodwill Industries (972-681-1630)
White Rock Center for Hope (214-324-8996).
​Canned, bagged, boxed foods. Some examples include jelly and jam, oatmeal and boxed cereals, canned vegetables, fruits and soups, tuna and canned chicken, baby formula and baby foods, mac n cheese and other boxed pasta items, bagged spaghetti and other types of pastas and spaghetti sauce in jars or cans, bread and bread products such as rolls and buns, packaged pastries such as donuts or muffins, cookies, crackers and snack foods for the kids. If they are non-perishable or dry, we likely accept them.
​Non-food items. Soaps, shampoos, toilet and nose tissue, toothpaste and tooth brushes, diapers Baby and adult), school supplies and new toys. We need clothing of all sizes and types for infants, children, men and women, underwear and socks (NEW ONLY).
