In-Kind Donations

When a family joins Solid Ground, they are often coming from difficult situations that force them to leave their personal belongings behind.  We rely on the community to help provide the items needed for families to settle into their new homes. For a list of these items, check out our basic needs wish list.

Please note: We are no longer accepting personal care items for adults. We do still need personal care items for children (toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo “no stinging of the eyes”, body wash “sensitive skin”, and bubble bath). Feel free to add a bath toy! No Travel size/hotel items, please.

You can also help in the following ways.

  • Host a Donation Drive: Check out our guide to donation drives.
  • Give through our Amazon Wish List: Purchase an item directly from our Amazon Wish List. Please address all deliveries to: East Metro Place Main Office.
  • Donate a Vehicle: Contact Andrée Aronson, CFRE, Director of Advancement at or 651-846-9027 for more information.
  • Donate Furniture through Bridging: We partner with Bridging, a local nonprofit that specializes in furniture donations, for families needing furniture when they move in.

Donations are accepted Monday through Friday at East Metro Place, 3521 Century Avenue North, White Bear Lake, Minnesota, 55110. Our offices have limited storage space, so please contact our Family, Youth & Community Engagement Manager at or 651-846-9024 before bringing in any donations.
