donate goods.

We are grateful for a caring community that generously provides resources for Veterans who have none. Donated food and hygiene items help our walk-in guests get through the day while household furnishings help turn our tiny houses into homes for the residents of VCP Village.

*** SPECIAL NOTE ***

During this health crisis, cleaning supplies are an absolute essential.
Please check our
Amazon Smile Charity list for our most needed items.

Tiny Home Furnishings.

We believe in housing with dignity so every tiny house is fully stocked with everything a Veteran needs to feel at home: new dishes, linens, towels, rugs, small kitchen appliances, furniture, cleaning supplies, and much more.

 

Our volunteers decorate with white, black, red, beige/tan, and blue/grey items so that furnishings coordinate throughout the house...please keep this in mind when making purchases. All donated household items must be new. Shop on-line or download our charity list

 

PRO TIP! AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support VCP every time you shop. You'll find the exact same prices and selection as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase price to VCP. Simply visit smile.amazon.com and select VCP from their list of eligible organizations.
