Other Ways To Give
Meet the needs of victims and children
throughout the year.
Around 120 survivors and their children reside in our emergency shelter at any given time. Your help is critical to ensure we’re prepared for major weather events. To help stock our hurricane supply closet, consider donations of the following items:
Summer is upon us and will be over before you know it. School supplies and gift cards for uniforms are ways you can help our families prepare for the new school year. Below are examples of school supplies that are needed by age.
Your donations go directly to kids living in shelter and in our outreach programs. When you’re ready to schedule your appointment to drop off school supplies, please email email@example.com. If possible, please try and drop off school supplies a week before school starts so families and staff can determine needs.
A sweet treat for the children at Hubbard House!
Many children look forward to the costumes and candy on Halloween, but it isn’t safe for our youngest residents to trick-or-treat outside of shelter. So, we bring Halloween and trick-or-treating to them! Through generous donations of candy and costumes from people like you, the children in shelter stop by staff offices in their princess and superhero costumes and celebrate Halloween safely with us.
You can help the children at Hubbard House celebrate Halloween safely. Consider donating non-violent costumes and candy. Not sure what size costume to get? We often have younger kids in shelter so we usually need more in those sizes.
Drop-offs can be scheduled a few days before Halloween by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hubbard House accepts special holiday donations from the community for survivors and children served in shelter or through Hubbard House’s outreach programs. If, in addition to your regular end-of-year gift, you would like to make the holidays special for a Hubbard House survivor-led family, the options are many! Below are ways to help.
You can also help support us through food, toiletry, linens and other basic needs drives. We’re currently in most need of food for the shelter. Learn more here.
Shop for and then put together baskets of Thanksgiving and/or holiday dinner staples (packaged, non-perishable items and a grocery gift card for the turkey or ham) for local survivor families in need of support.
With your help, families will have a Thanksgiving dinner, including turkey and all of the fixings. Please see the shopping list below.
Baskets can be donated by appointment November 14, 15 and 16 at the Hubbard House Outreach Center, located at 6629 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32216.
Please contact email@example.com in advance to schedule your drop-off appointment. For safety reasons, an appointment is required.
Due to limited refrigeration space, please no perishable food items. To assist us in distribution, please package your holiday feast in a box or brown grocery bags.
Adopt and shop for one survivor-led family. Then deliver unwrapped gifts (purchased from their wish lists) to make your adopted family’s holiday happier.
Each year, Hubbard House heroes adopt up to 40 families in our Outreach programs. Each adopted family provides a wish list, which is emailed to donors in early November.
The estimated cost is $100-$125 per person in the family, so this may be a good option for a corporation, club or group. We ask that you donate new and unwrapped gifts and attempt to purchase all of the items on the list. Keep in mind these are likely to be the only presents a family will receive this year.
(Note: if this option is cost prohibitive, but you’d still like to support Hubbard House families, please see our Toy and Mommy Store options for shelter residents)
Donations of wrapping paper, tape and bows are appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at the Hubbard House Outreach Center located at 6629 Beach Boulevard, Jacksonville, FL 32216. For safety reasons, an appointment is required for delivery.
We accept donations for this program Dec 6, 7 and 8.
To sign up for the program and schedule your delivery or you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring joy to an in-shelter child or parent!
Shh! It’s a secret to our in-shelter residents but our elves create two magical stores at the holidays – one for kids and one for parents. You and other members of our community are key to creating these magical wonderlands. Consider giving new toys or new adult gifts to stock our stores.
At the Survivor Store, in-shelter children shop for free for special gifts for their in-shelter parent. Some gift ideas include:
Think about what items you’d like to receive for the holidays and consider donating them.
In the Toy Store, in-shelter parents shop for their children for free. Thanks to the generosity of our community, parents in shelter have the opportunity to give presents to their children. These may be the only gifts a child receives and are guaranteed to bring joy.
Please, no toy guns, knives or other violent toys for any age.
Donations will be accepted by appointment Dec 13, 14, and 15 at the Hubbard House Outreach Center, 6629 Beach Boulevard, 32216 between 9:00am-3:30pm.
The last date we are able to accept toy and gift donations is December 15th. We ask this so that our families can plan for Christmas.
Festive papers, suitable for all ages, accepted and appreciated! In-shelter moms and kids wrap their own gifts to keep holiday traditions strong. (Little ones get plenty of help.)
