In-Kind Needs

Donate Goods

End of year update: Due to the kindness of amazing donors, we are having a storage issue. That’s the good news! The other news is we are asking those interested in donating in-kind items to either hold them until after the first of the year, or to donate their items to other amazing causes like Goodwill.

OR consider donating to our Holiday Store, where new and unwrapped gifts are collected each holiday season at Ward Parkway Center, and given directly to the families receiving services at Rose Brooks. Learn more: Holiday Store.

But most importantly, we thank you for thinking of Rose Brooks Center and hope to hear from you soon. If you have any questions, please reach out to our in-kind coordinator at: or 816-523-5550 x8000.
