The Hermiston Domestic Violence Services

Supplies Needed!

Women and men who come to the Domestic Violence Services shelter are in crisis, often leaving their homes with nothing: no extra clothing, nothing for their children, and little or no money. In 2008, the DVS sheltered 189 women for a total of 2,594 nights. 158 children were sheltered for 1,979 nights. 13,840 meals were provided. The following items can be donated to help provide supplies for people needing shelter:
  • Laundry detergent
  • Cleaning supplies
  • 13-gallon garbage bags
  • Paper products
  • Bleach
  • Children's socks and underwear
  • Women's socks, underwear and bras
  • Sweats, all sizes
  • Baby diapers, all sizes
  • Phone and gas cards
  • Frozen meats
  • Lunch meats
  • Frozen dinners
  • Juices
