Contempo’s Community of Giving

We are proud to accept item donations from our guests for contribution to select agencies in the local community. Participating in this program is easy, and in the process, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of animals, children, and families in need! Bring items from home in the leftover spaces in your suitcase, or purchase items locally during your visit.

Though most donations are requested to be unopened product, we do also have outlets to donate “leftover” quantities of items like shampoos, liquid soaps and other bottled toiletries. These are readily accepted by various homeless shelters and domestic violence centers throughout Central Florida.

Whatever items you have to donate can be dropped off at the Contempo offices, or simply leave them bagged/boxed up when you leave your vacation home along with a note that these items are for donation. Items will be delivered to these organizations in bulk drop-offs or pick-ups.

Special note to Contempo home owners – as your homes are upgraded or items are replaced, if you haven’t given us alternative directions, we will be distributing any applicable items for donation to the organizations listed below.

Please see the following wish lists to discover what supplies are needed for our projects. We appreciate your gracious support!

Ronald McDonald House Charities

Since 1996, RMHCCF has come to mean comfort and care for over 25,000 families. Our cornerstone program, the Ronald McDonald House, provides a home away from home for families with children receiving treatment at hospitals and medical facilities in Orlando. There are three Ronald McDonald Houses in Orlando. Each year, about 2,000 families stay with us to be close to their critically ill children.

More often than not, families arrive at our Houses with the bare minimum. Show them someone cares by donating the comforts of home. These items will go to benefit the following Orlando-area locations:

Florida Hospital House    Arnold Palmer House    Nemours House
