OTSBFT Holds Donation Drop-off Day


Saturday, July 19 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.


Our Lady of the Assumption Church’s parking lot 545 Stratfield Road, Fairfield, CT.


Basic Household Items (click here for list)


When a homeless person gets a room or apartment, often he/she moves in with only the clothes on their back and the few articles they can carry in their arms. Off the Streets wants their clients to have a new beginning and that starts with the “small things of life” — basic furnishings that transforms a basic, empty apartment into a home.

OTS supplies its clients with a ‘care package’ of necessary household items and toiletries when they are placed in their new home.  Click DONATIONS LIST for a printable version of the detailed list of needed items.
