How You Can Help
Help us provide food, clothing and education assistance to those in need in the Northern Virginia area. Your gift provides meaningful, life-changing assistance to those most in need in our community.
MAKE A DONATION
Cash gifts help the organization to continue. It is not always attractive to ask for money for rent, utilities, supplies, and the like, but without these very necessary expenses, we would not be able to provide for the programming aspect of the mission such as the food pantry, clothing assistance and educational classes.
The most effective way to support House of Mercy is a monthly giving commitment. By making a monthly donation to House of Mercy you are joining a dedicated group of individuals passionate about providing regular assistance to the food insecure in Northern Virginia. This is an easy, efficient, and tax-deductible way to make a difference!

OTHER WAYS TO DONATE
Food may be the largest gift-in-kind resource that we are constantly in need of! Our grocery list is printable, just click here. We love to partner with groups that would like to do a food drive for us.
Donated canned and boxed food must be unopened and unexpired.
Use our Amazon Wishlist to order needed items that will be directly delivered to our food pantry.
DONATE CLOTHES & HOUSEWARES
100% of revenue from our Thrift Store goes directly to our Passport to Hope assistance program (Food Pantry, Clothing assistance & Education). We always need items donated to keep our thrift store full and ever changing for our customers. Please check out our Donation Center page for more information on what we take and how to donate.
DONATE BY SHOPPING
Hidden treasures, housewares and clothing can all be found in our thrift store. Shop Monday-Saturday from 10am – 5pm. Your purchases help our clients because 92 cents of every dollar goes to the support of our food pantry. LEARN MORE
Do you shop on Amazon? Shop at Amazon Smile and select House of Mercy as your dedicated charity. We will receive a small commission on all your purchases.
DONATE TIME & TALENTS
While we need financial resources to run, we realize that sometimes, time and skills can be a much more valuable resource to give than any amount of money. We are always in need of volunteers, please see our volunteer or service group page for more information on how to get involved.
DONATE GIFT CARDS
There are some items we just don’t have available for our clients, so we are able to help them with certain needs through gift cards. If you would like to donate gift cards, our most needed cards are walmart/target, grocery stores, or gas cards. If you have other unused or partially used gift cards, just call, we can probably use them as well!
