Donate Supplies & Auction Items

We are currently looking for coats, blankets, sleeping bags, tents, hats and gloves.

We are always in need of men’s clothes as well.

We LOVE all kinds of food. Canned goods, breads, pastries, meat. We love eating. 🙂

Cleaning supplies like cleaning detergents, garbage bags and that sort of thing are in big demand.

And if you have general household items that maybe aren’t directly useful to the homeless then we can put them in our store or do an auction with them to raise money for our charity. We never charge the needy for items. If a person needs something we’ll give it to them.

You can drop donations off for our Second Chance Store, Monday through Saturday 9-5 and Sunday noon to 5. Just come down the right side of our building. If the door is locked just knock.

We’re at:
15 Broad St.
Akron, Oh 44305

If you have valuable items for auction, please contact Rubber City Auctions directly.
