    Members of the community are encouraged to bring donations to the McDonough Welcome Center (5 Griffin Street) or several locations in the Historic Downtown McDonough area, including: Kirby G’s Diner and Ice Cream Parlor - 45 Macon Street, The Office Group – 37 Griffin Street and Invert Skate Shop / Hot Shots – 45 John Frank Ward Blvd.    

  Requested clothing, food, household, and toiletry items include: paper towels, Lysol spray, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, dishwashing liquid, pot holders, kitchen towels, twin bed sheets (gently used are welcome), twin blankets (gently used are welcome), bath towels (gently used are welcome), boys and girls Underpants- all sizes, spaghetti sauce and noodles, canned fruit, canned tuna, macaroni and cheese, copy paper, deodorant, combs and hair brushes, disposable razors, and baby wipes. 

  Throughout the year the Haven House needs small denomination gift cards for gas and food. They also accept gift certificates that may be used for outings with the children on school breaks and holidays.

  Since opening its doors in 1999, Haven House has protected more than 4,500 victims of domestic violence and their children, plus assisted an additional 15,000 people through various outreach programs. The 48-bed safe shelter located in McDonough serves women and children from Henry, Jasper, Butts and Lamar counties. To Learn more about Haven House visit
