Donations

The Aloha Inn is happy to receive donations of money and items we can put to good use. We are always happily accepting volunteers as well.

Food
We rely on donations to serve nutritious hot meals to 66 people every evening. In addition we provide a sack lunch to people working or going to appointments. The kitchen regularly needs donations of:
  • Silverware
  • Cups and bowls
  • Food Donations (please call first and speak with staff 206-283-6070)
Supplies
The Aloha Inn houses homeless men and women who were living on the streets or in emergency shelters. People often enter our program with little more than the clothes on their backs. The Aloha Inn regularly needs the following donations to help welcome new residents into our program:
  • Pillows
  • Towels
  • Queen sized sheets and blankets
  • Hygiene supplies (shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, etc.)
Volunteers
The Aloha Inn residents manage the daily operation of the building in exchange for their room and board. As a result we have limited opportunities for volunteers. We do have an ongoing need for help in our Computer Lab and Kitchen. Please contact staff at 206.283.6070 or via email at alohainn@alohainn.org.
