The Sparrow’s Nest depends upon the generosity of the community to meet the needs of the families and individuals we serve, not only through monetary donations but also through volunteering and non-cash items such as meals, clothing, and toiletry items.

Each gift, whether it is monetary or your time and effort, is greatly appreciated and provides meaningful assistance. Prayerfully consider monthly support, a year-end gift, or regular volunteer involvement.

The Sparrow's Nest is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit, and all donations are tax deductible.
