Gift cards are used to replace smaller items, to purchase cleaning supplies, and for repairs, as needed:
These items may be purchased and brought to Mission Haven, or you can purchase them on-line and have them shipped to us. Please always call to make sure that others have not arranged to supply a certain item before you send them. The list will be updated as residences are renewed.
Dressers with working drawers
Suitcases with wheels
Standard size pillows and pillow covers
Some Circles have held showers for Mission Haven to gather paper goods, toiletries or laundry and cleaning supplies. We try to have basic needs in the bathroom and kitchen for the families arriving off planes from overseas.
We welcome individuals and groups to assist with a variety of chores, including:
preparing a unit for a new resident
If you are available to assist on a regular or one-time basis, please contact Alice Day at 770-469-7363 for more information.
We serve mission co-workers and their families, including men, women, and children while they are living at Mission Haven. We also serve the students who attend Columbia Theological Seminary and their families. We supply everything from underwear to overcoats.
We ask that you only bring items that are in good condition and in style — would you give it to your own pastor and his/her family? Other organizations like homeless shelters, Goodwill and Salvation Army will certainly appreciate the items that will not meet our standards. We have limited storage space. Your willingness to sort clothing drive donations before bringing them to Mission Haven will greatly help our very limited volunteer staff.
Clothing for children and teens are always needed. Shopping at the Clothes Closet definitely helps those limited family budgets. We want our kids to look great when they walk into school or church.
If you arrive when the closet is closed, you can place your donations on the bench and/or hang on the clothing rod just outside the door. Rest assured, this area is protected from the elements. Our Resident Manager will move your items inside at her earliest convenience. If you would like an acknowledgment, please leave your name and address in the box. For additional questions, please contact Susan Adle: 404-791-1363.
Of course, financial contributions are always welcome and needed to maintain our 3 houses and 6 apartments.
