These are persistent needs that are a part of the type of work that we do at GLRC.

  • Residential Courtesy Items: Our clients come from every conceivable circumstance and some of them enter our program with little more than the clothes that they have on. Our Residential Staff maintain a solid relationship with local thrift shops and charities. We do keep a stock of commonly needed items on hand whenever possible. Items include: toiletries (toilet paper, diapers, disposable razors, deodorant, tooth brushes etc.), batteries and lightly-used clothing.


  • Residential Nutrition: It is the responsibility of our Residential Services to provide proper nutrition for our clients. We work with local community food pantries and retailers in order to keep costs down without sacrificing quality meals for our clients, but we can always use non-perishable food items, access to community gardens and lightly-used kitchen utensils, cookware and place settings.


  • Residential Furniture: Our Residential Programs serve hundreds of individuals for weeks at a time each year. Often our people are suffering through they symptoms of substance abuse and mental health disorders. The powerful emotions that often accompany those symptoms can cause the client to act out. For this reason, our residential facilities are often in need of new or lightly used: bedroom furniture, living room furniture, lamps, mirrors, bedding, linens and office equipment and furniture.


We are also always accepting the items on the list below:
