In-Kind Donations

Your gently used or new items have the ability to turn a house into a home, provide a homeless family with hope, and bring a smile to the face of a neglected high school youth.

When you donate to NCCF, you can be confident that your clothing, furniture, and household goods are making a difference. Our donation store, Dr. C’s Boutique, allows clients from all of our 20+ programs throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area to enjoy a shopping experience without spending any money.

Not sure if your item is right for NCCF? Check out the list of needed items below, call Jermaine Lemons (240-743-7252), or use our contact form and we will gladly help you find the right home for your donated items.
