Click on the link below to donate to Mary's Shelter

We are looking to enlist the help of 1 million friends.  If Mary’s Shelter had 1 million FRIENDS who DONATED $1 each year – we could continue to grow, expand and help young people in our community.

It’s simple. Donate online or send $1(or more) in the envelope – THEN MORE IMPORTANTLY -  forward this information to everyone in your email address book, post on Facebook, get creative and ask them to share our story as well!


One million friends – $1 – and MILLIONS OF LIVES CAN BE CHANGED

Thank you all so much for thinking of us. Unfortunately, we can no longer accepting used donations at this time. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of the community and the amount of baby and children's clothing received – and we simply do not have room for more donations. Continue to follow our Facebook page and website – we will post when we are able to accept donations again.
