Personal Care offers personal care items such as soap, shampoo, mouthwash, tooth brushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, combs, feminine hygiene products, diapers, etc.
We provide a mailing address, use of a telephone and a message service. Guests can pick up their mail and any messages during lunch, 11:30 to 12:00, and during dinner, 5:30 to 6:00.
Additionally, we hand out socks and dog and cat food when available.

We have a policy at Plowshares regarding donations of used clothing. We do not accept any clothes except for new or barely used clean socks. Donated clothes need sorting, cleaning, storage and distribution. We have a limited capacity of our Personal Care Center staff and physical space. We also do not have laundry facilities to wash clothes. Please do not bring used clothing or large quantities of books, household or other items to Plowshares! It is best to take these to another organization specifically geared toward this purpose.
Our mission is to feed people and provide personal care items. Prepared food donations need to have been cooked or baked in a commercial kitchen. Fresh garden produce is always welcome. Donations of groceries, cash and personal care items such as shampoo, soap, razors and socks continue to be greatly appreciated and needed at Plowshares.
Thank you for your generosity and understanding.
