Piedmont House operates on a shoestring budget that has to cover food and utilities for approximately twenty residents, rent, insurance, other expenses, replacement of appliances, repairs and maintenance of the house and grounds and staff salaries. In addition, the men entering our program typically come to Piedmont House without clothing including coats, funds, boots, gloves, tools, shampoo, soap or even toothpaste. In short, they have nothing. Working with some of our community counterparts, Piedmont House is able to direct them to places like the Salvation Army and Offender Aid and Restoration for assistance with some clothing or vouchers for things like work boots.
Piedmont House is always glad to receive donations of any type menís clothing, tools, shoes and boots and almost anything else in good condition.
Piedmont House is also most happy to receive monetary gifts in any amount. Several members of the community have been very kind in providing both used and new clothing, cash donations and gift cards to be used at such stores as WalMart, CVS and Kmart.
Those wishing to drop off monetary, clothing or other types of donations may do so on any day of the week between the ours of & 7 AM and 7 PM as Piedmont House is staffed 24-7. A tax donation form is available.
