In-kind donations

Your gifts help AHN provide compassionate care and a remarkable experience for the patients and visitors at our care facilities. 

The AHN Volunteer Resources Department is able to accept in-kind donations of items for our patients and programs. You can find a list of items we need most below. We are grateful and appreciative of all donations.

Email the Volunteer Department at the facility where you’d like to donate prior to dropping off any items. We’ll schedule a time and date to accept your donation.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still able to accept some donations of brand-new items. The best way to give back is by fundraising and making a monetary contribution to your preferred AHN Volunteer Resource Program. This allows us to purchase items on your behalf from our trusted suppliers and limit the number of hands in the donation process. Please email the Volunteer Department at the facility you wish to donate to.  

Items that can be donated

Your donated items have a profound positive impact on patients at AHN facilities, and we appreciate the role you play in helping provide a remarkable health care experience. Our patients benefit most from:

  • Word search, sudoku, crossword, or adult coloring books.
  • Novels, books, and journals.
  • Puzzles, playing cards, magazines, and games like checkers, chess, dominos, etc.
  • Reading glasses (all strengths).
