Computer Equipment

The Mission has an urgent need for laptop and desktop computers for our learning centers and for program graduates. If you have gently-used technology equipment in good working order, please e-mail or call 202-745-7118 to schedule an appointment for delivery.


Through this program, your donated vehicle will be used to provide transportation, resources and the opportunity some hungry, homeless or hurting person needs to make a difference in their life. We are only able to accept vehicles in working order and especially need vans, refrigerated trucks and buses. To donate, you must have clear title to the vehicle. You can bring the car to us, or we will pick it up within a 50-mile radius.

To schedule a drop-off or pick-up of your vehicle, call 202-745-7118 ext. 235, or email for more information about vehicle donations.
