DONATE

Items given to our Villa Shoppe (formerly known as the Donation Center) go directly to Villa children and families in need, at no cost to them. We welcome clean and usable clothing, housewares, linens, toiletries, school and office supplies, and new toys and games.

Volunteers are able to accept your donations Monday – Wednesday, 11 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The Villa Shoppe is located in the basement of the Administration Building (separate entrance on the right side of the building). Get directions.

Sorry, we are unable to accept: furniture, used mattresses, box springs, pillows, stuffed animals, car seats, console televisions, luggage and exercise equipment.

Your willingness to deliver the items to the Villa Shoppe is greatly appreciated as we do not have the resources to pick up donations from the community. If you have any additional questions please call 804-553-3202.

Please keep bags light so volunteers may easily lift them.

Season of Hope

The Villa campus is a lively and joyful place during the holidays, but it may not be the same scenario at home. Join us in sharing the holiday spirit by becoming a Season of Hope sponsor and fulfilling a child’s wish list. Your gift provides cheer and necessities to those in need. Learn how you can get involved here.
