We also have an Amazon Wish List for those who would like to purchase a gift. Items are shipped directly to the shelter.

Stay connected on our Lowell Community Donation Center Facebook page or just ask us what we need.

If you’d like to host a drive we can help! Our our volunteer coordinator is available to answer your questions, provide guidance and flyers, and share your social media posts.

Donation drop off is at the front desk (hours 8am-6pm). Our address is 193 Middlesex Street (the gray door) in Lowell MA, 01852 and there is metered parking available on the street. You are welcome to use our parking lot by the side of the building on Saturday and Sunday.

*Please note that LTLC accepts any textiles donated, but items that are not on the Wish List are re-donated to Baystate Textiles and they donate $100 a ton to LTLC. Three donation bins are located in the LTLC parking lot to the left and are white. You can donate items directly to the bins, anything that is a textile and must be in a tied bag.


We are fortunate enough to have more than enough of a few certain items (shampoo, conditioner, and soap). We also partner with other local organizations to get the things we need for our clients. Please check out this great resource for donating your furniture, household goods, and electronics
