Thank you for your interest in donating items to CHS! We currently have the following donation needs for our various programs. Please call 804-353-0191 prior to donating any items so that we can ensure no duplicates are received. No baked goods, please.
My Path Forward Donations
To help the young people enrolled in My Path Forward (formerly The Possibilities Project) every day, consider making a monthly gift. This would go towards the expenses of keeping the program running. A small monthly gift can have a long term impact! You can set this up automatically online with the Donate Now button, or call for more information.
One of our biggest on-going needs is transportation. We would love to accept donations of bus passes, VISA gift cards, or even a car(!) that could be given to a My Path Forward youth who needs it for their continued success.
Items to meet sensory needs of our youth:
Fidgets (click here for some ideas)
Sucking or chewing candy (lollipops, jolly ranchers, gum, etc)
Small baskets or buckets (for creating sensory boxes with the various items)
(Note: Please do not purchase bulk items, as we need regular-sized items to distribute to individual apartments)
Personal hygiene items
Household cleaning supplies
Gift cards to gas stations
Uber Gift cards
Visa Gift Cards

Adoptive Family Donation Ideas
During the adoption process, parents and children spend time visiting and bonding with one another. We would appreciate donations of gift cards/certificates for family-friendly outings such as movie theaters, bowling alleys, SkateNation, Jumpology, Sky Zone, Chuck E Cheese, Science Museum of Virginia, Metro Richmond Zoo, or local restaurants.
