Donate Goods

We thank you in advance for considering The INN as a recipient of your donated goods and supplies. Sponsoring a collection drive of items for guests of The INN is a great way to Get INNvolved. Not only is it a fun activity, but the items collected will help guests with basic necessities.


Try You Give Goods to order our most needed items online! You can even create your own drive with the name of your family, company or group! At the end of your drive, The INN will receive a monetary donation of 5% of the total items purchased!

Things We Always Need

The INN operates the Mary Brennan INN soup kitchen, the largest soup kitchen on Long Island where over 200,000 meals are served annually. You can help us by hosting a food drive in your community of non-perishable, shelf-stable food items.

Personal Care Items (Toiletries)

The INN provides essential personal care items to guests to take with them, as well as an option to shower on-site at our facility. To provide this service, we need both full-sized and travel-sized toiletries like, soap, shampoo and deodorant.


Diapers are an expensive and essential item for families. Little guests make up about 30% of The INN’s guest population. Diapers are needed to distribute weekly, especially in sizes 4 and up. Wipes, pull-ups, baby food and formula are also needed.


By holding a clothing drive, for in-season items, you are providing guests with appropriate clothing for interviews, special occasions, as well as children’s clothing for the school year. Donate brand new or gently used clothing in all sizes for all ages.
