Linens and Things


CARE Services DOES NOT routinely accept clothing and shoe donations. However, the CARE Services has relationships with community consignment shops. When students are in need of clothing and/or shoes, these shops fulfill those needs of students referred by the CARE Services. The CARE Services' current partner is Ecologie LLC.

Even though CARE is unable to accept clothing, there are other KSU services that do!  Check out OwlSwap and the TRANScend Clothing Closet.

Personal Care Items

The CARE Services provides personal care items to our students such as toothpaste, deodorant, lotion, soap and laundry detergent.  Currently CARE Services is in great need of ethnic hair care products.


We are able to collect new, unused linens such as twin-size bed sheets, blankets, bed in a bag sets, towels, etc.

Gift Cards

Some times we need to provide items for students that we simply cannot collect.  Gift cards are a great asset for students to purchase needed items.
