Question by Rita: how do I get business to donate to my church outreach ministries, for nursing homes & homeless shelters?
I’m a leader of my church outreach ministries and I would like for our team to go to the nursing homes and homeless shelters & streets where homeless live and also drug rehab centers, to give them personal items as we minister to them.

Talk to the owners and tell them about what you’re doing. I know that some organizations share the credit with businesses that sponsor them. Maybe you could ask your local newspaper to do a story about your project and mention that you need donations or set up booths at public events.
~I have never heard of a church needing to fill out any forms to accept donations. Maybe in large cities? I must admit though that I answered this question based on my own experiances and not just something I googled.~
