While all in-kind donations are deeply appreciated and will be put to good use, the Ion Center respectfully requests that all clothing and household linen donations be new; toiletries be full-sized and unopened; and food items be unopened and within their respective expiration dates. In this way, you can help us serve victim-survivors with dignity and efficiency. Thank you!
