Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19, UBH has stopped accepting used donations in addition to any food that has not been pre-packaged during manufacturing, or has not been prepared in a certified commercial kitchen. This policy will only be in effect until the virus slows down.
Thank you for understanding and stay safe out there!
With your donations of food, clothing, and household items, we are able to provide our families and their children with a warm and welcoming experience at Upward Bound House.
To learn more about items we accept and our drop-off policies and procedures, please read the following: UBH Drop-off Donation Guidelines
Please drop-off all in-kind goods at 1020 12th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90403. Hours of Operation are Monday –Friday 9:00AM-5:30PM, although we prefer donations to be dropped off M-F 10AM-2PM. When you arrive, press “100” at the gate, drive into the underground parking lot, take two left turns to arrive at the Pantry and someone should be there to assist you.
Large donations must call ahead to make an appointment.
