Meeting real needs for real people in real time.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?
Sometimes people find themselves in need of help for a variety of reasons. The purpose of Real Needs is to identify needs, find the items, and deliver them to the recipient.
How it works: Community service agencies on the Palouse can submit a request to Real Needs on behalf of a client. The staff at Real Needs broadcasts the need to our large database of donors—people who may have used items that are in good shape. Then a moving team picks up the items from the donor and delivers them to the recipient. This process means the items are loaded and unloaded only once.
What needs are filled: We fill requests for large items such as couches, dressers, beds, tables, chairs, washers, dryers, and refrigerators.
How you can become a donor: To be added to the donor database, use the ADD ME TO THE DONOR LIST button below and provide your contact information.
