Donation Drives

You can have an extraordinary, lasting impact on adults and children in desperate need with a simple donation drive. Any time of the year is a perfect time to create a donation drive for our Illumination Foundation homeless adults and children. Read each of the descriptions, and just click any of the photos to get started with a quick information form. From there, we’ll get in touch with you to help you with organizational ideas!

Therapeutic Activities

Items for Clients: Illumination Foundation is serving more clients every day in order to serve the most vulnerable street homeless, keep them out of emergency rooms and under our high quality of care where prevention and physical and mental health are our key priorities. Help provide therapeutic activities for individuals experiencing homelessness. Please visit our Amazon Wishlist for appropriate items to donate. These items will be received at our Orange HQ and distributed immediately to our clients. Additionally, we are accepting gently used and new books! Please contact squinn@ifhomeless.org to schedule a donation drop off. We can not thank you enough for your generosity during this time. It is your kindness that brings light and hope to our clients.
