A Special Way to Give

There are so many ways to help us serve our community. You can support our clients directly by donating in-kind goods —including quality of life items that are too often overlooked.

From soap and shampoo, to diapers and formula, your gift will ensure that basic necessities are put directly in the hands of those who need it most. We do not accept furniture.

To make an in-kind donation, please contact CEC by email or by phone at (954) 987-0625. Items can be dropped off at our offices, Monday thru Friday, between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM.
