Donate Goods

Why Donate Goods?

Your gently used or new items have the ability to turn a house into a home, provide a homeless family with hope and bring a smile to the face of a neglected high school youth.

At NCCF, you can be confident that your clothing, furniture and household goods are making a difference. Our donation store, Dr. C’s Boutique, allows clients from all of our 24 programs throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area to enjoy a shopping experience without spending any money.

If you have any questions, please contact Jermaine Lemons, In-Kind Donations Specialist, on his office phone (301) 365-4480 ext. 109, cell phone (240) 743-7252 or email jlemons@nccf-cares.org.
