Furnish The Future
Due to COVID-19 constraints, we are only able to accept the donations listed below at this time. A self-service donation box has been set up in the parking lot of our main office, 1880 Princeton Avenue, Lawrenceville. You’re also welcome to drop off donations when our staff is present at the address above on Monday and Thursday between 11am and 2pm or Tuesday between 3pm and 6pm. It also may be convenient for you (and works really well for us!) to purchase donations off of our Amazon wish list

If you are already out shopping for necessities or are able to shop online, consider a donation of our most needed items: diapers (sizes 4, 5, 6 and Pull-Ups/Easy Ups in all sizes), baby wipes, canned goods (protein like chicken/tuna, ravioli, beef stew, soup, and fruit), baby formula, dry cereal, and shelf stable milk (Horizon/Natrel/Parmalat or powdered milk) and fans and small air-conditioning units. Online shipments can be delivered to 1880 Princeton Ave, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648. For more information, call 609-989-9417 x133 or email getinvolved@homefrontnj.org.


Hundreds of families in Mercer County must decide each month whether to buy food or to pay the rent. Emergency food bags are available from our FoodPantry for the growing number of families and seniors who can’t afford enough food to make it through the month. HomeFront distributes approximately 700 bags of free groceries to low-income families each month. HomeFront also coordinates the delivery of donated hot meals prepared by area congregations and community groups. These dedicated volunteers also donate and prepare food for HomeFront events from holiday parties to graduation ceremonies. To participate contact us at getinvolved@homefrontnj.org. Last year we distributed more than $2.6 million worth of donated goods and professional services to our families. Emergency Food Bags Once a month, clients may receive a grocery bag filled with a week’s supply of food from our food pantry. Food is obtained from the Mercer Street Friends food bank, USDA surplus items and local food drives.


Our FreeStore provides working poor families with donated small household and clothing items. Worn-out or ill-fitting garments are not conducive to success, so the FreeStore provides children and parents with presentable, gently worn clothing and shoes for school and work. When a new job or an impending job interview calls for something special, clients can shop for professional attire in a special room within the store.
