GET HELP - Are you a young person in need of help?

Donate New Items

Would you like to donate new items?

We would love to have your help in providing our young people with some of the things they need and we need to care for them. We have three options to make it easy.

You can choose whatever works best for you:

1) Collect new items – Collecting new items for our young people is a great way to help them. Whether working as an individual or a group, we encourage you to pick something from our list. We have put an asterisk next to the items we need most.
Please let us know if you are going to do a collection so that we can plan accordingly. Many of the items on our list are critical and time-sensitive needs that our young people cannot go without having.
Once you collect items, just give a call back to our contact person and arrange a time that works for dropping the items off to us.

2) Order items directly from one of our gift registries and the items will be shipped directly to us. Currently, we have the following gift registries up and running:
Target Gift Registry for Covenant House New Jersey
This is a great idea for an upcoming celebration – have your friends and family buy gifts for a young person in need in lieu of bringing presents to a party for you. Maybe host a baby shower and collect the items on the registry for a new mom and her baby.

3) Buy Gift Cards and drop them off or send them to us. These are cards we can readily use.

We cannot accept used Items

The processing of used donated goods takes a substantial amount of facility space and personnel to sort, wash, store, and distribute items. Over time we have determined that for the needs we have, this activity is not cost justified. As such we are no longer able to accept used goods of any type.

Amazon Smile

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Covenant House New Jersey every time you shop at Amazon, at no cost to you. When you shop log in at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to us to care for homeless young people. 

Just log in through their charity page, and designate Covenant House New Jersey as your charity.
