Request for Donations

Code Purple Sussex County does not make phone calls requesting donations to businesses or to the public in general.  We post our needs on our website and Facebook page.  Sometimes a board member may request a specific item, such as restaurants partnering with our shelters to provide meals but we will not call on businesses to donate items to us.  If at any time you receive a request for donation and it is not from a board member or on official letterhead please contact our Executive Director Nikki Gonzalez at 302-519-0024 or our Donations Coordinator Teresa Shockley at 302-381-8792.  Anyone wishing to donate much needed items please see our needs list and drop off at the below locations or to St. Luke’s Parish House in Seaford or Avenue UMC in Milford anytime between 7pm and 9pm.  Our shelters are open nightly till March 12th, 2017.  We are a very fluid shelter and see many different guests come in nightly and the supplies go quickly so please consider making a donation, especially food donations, paper products like bowls, cups (hot & cold), plates, and plastic ware. We are also always in need of drinks, coffee, sugar, creamer, underwear (male & female), gloves, long johns, winter boots, and jeans!

Please call Teresa Shockley at 302-381-8792 if you wish to know more about the items the shelters are in need of!
