Make a Difference Today

The Durham Crisis Response Center relies on donations to provide vital services in our community. Financial contributions are important for funding our operations as some of our needs cannot be funded through grants.

Donate Items or Goods

DCRC maintains a wish list of all the things needed on an on-going basis. If you would like to donate any of the following new items listed below, please drop them off at Pennies for Change, our thrift store, located at 2715 Chapel Hill Blvd. near Guglhupf.

Donate a Cell Phone

Do you have an old cell phone you are no longer using? Donate it to DCRC and it could save someone’s life. Cell phones can be used to dial 911 in an emergency, whether or not they are activated. If you have a cell phone that has been cleared of all information and unlocked,  please drop it off at the DCRC main office or penniesforCHANGE, with its charger.

All donations are tax-deductible.

Donate a Vehicle

The Durham Crisis Response Center accepts vehicle donations through a secure site provided by the Vehicle Donation to Any Charity Program.

Donate Goods or Services

The DCRC shelter houses over two hundred women and children every year, requiring lots of odds and ends to keep the household running. DCRC relies on gifts from the community to make stays at the shelter as comfortable as possible.

Professional services, such as painting, plumbing, electrical work, landscaping and more, are extremely helpful and allow us to provide more services directly to clients. If you can mow the grass, fix a leaky sink or handle a hammer, we have a job for you. Please contact us at shelter@durhamcrisisresponse.org for more information.
