Items We Need Donated

Baby Supplies

Baby items play a crucial role in supporting families within our community. We are especially in need of diapers (particularly in larger sizes), pull-ups, baby wipes, formula, new or gently used Pack ‘n Plays, bottles, and binkies. Your generous donations will help ensure that infants and toddlers receive the care and comfort they need. You can shop the list below – or bring new or gently used items to the Pete Andersen FUSION Family Center at 1505 S 328th St, Federal Way, WA 98003.

Household Items

You can help FUSION by donating essential household items for our Transitional Housing homes. We are in need of new or like new: dishes, pots and pans, silverware, cups & glasses, kitchen supplies, bathroom accessories & linens. These contributions will help create a comfortable and functional living environment for families as they work towards stability and independence. Your support in donating these items is greatly appreciated and will make a significant impact on the lives of those in our community.

Finally Home Fund

The shortage of low-income housing and high landlord requirements make it hard for homeless families to secure permanent housing. Initial costs like application fees, rent, and deposits add to the burden. Limited rental assistance from agencies depletes quickly.

To help, FUSION’s Finally Home fund covers these initial costs for employed families ready to sustain rent but lacking the resources to move in. 

Beds & Mattresses

Do you have spare beds to donate to our Family Center and Transitional Housing families? We need new or gently used mattresses, box springs, and metal frames in twin, full, and queen sizes. Please, no items that are saggy, soiled or stained. 

Contact us at 253-874-1257 or for drop-off instructions or to schedule a pick-up.

Furniture for Housing

Our housing units come fully furnished with beds, furniture & appliances.  All donations must be clean and in good condition; we do not accept broken furniture, appliances needing repair, or items that are significantly worn. We  welcome small sofas, chairs, dinette sets, coffee tables, nightstands, lamps, pictures, and other accessories that make a house a home. 

Contact us at 253-874-1257 or for drop-off instructions or to schedule a pick-up.
