Since The Gray House opened its doors in 1984, support from individual donors and businesses has played a crucial role. The Gray House relies on the compassion and generosity of individuals and groups in the community for donations of funds, food, educational/office supplies and time. Your donation is an investment in our mission and community. Please consider making a monetary donation online using PayPal or by sending a check.
If you are interested in donating food or hosting a drive, please refer to our Thanksgiving Food list. Donations can be dropped off Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am–3pm no later than Friday, November 20. For larger food drives, please call 413-734-6696 ext. 3 to arrange a drop off time.
The Gray House collects toys for children in our community through general toy drives and through an adopt a family or child program. Please read below for more details on each. We ask that all gifts be dropped off to The Gray House new, unwrapped between 12/7–11 during our normal business hours (Mon–Fri 8:45am–4pm). Please email email@example.com if you would like to host a toy drive or adopt a family.
Adopt a Family or Child
The Gray House collects wish lists from families throughout our programs as well as from our local family shelters. We try to make sure that each child receives between $35–50(max) in gifts. Based on this information, please let us know how many children you would like to adopt and we will match you with specific children or a family and give you their wish lists.
General Toy Drives
Miscellaneous new, unwrapped gifts are also needed for newborns to youth under 18. The Gray House provides an additional 500 children with these gifts with the help of schools in our community. This year, we’ve also set up an Amazon wish list that you can purchase from! Please feel free to have the items shipped directly to The Gray House at 22 Sheldon Street, Springfield, MA 01107.
