Here’s how to prepare your donations for safe delivery:

  • Items in plastic garbage bags harbor germs, bacteria, and mold.
  • Instead, please package all donations in safe containers including paper bags, boxes, and reusable tubs.
  • Make sure your donations are clean and in good repair.
  • Freshly laundered, wiped down using sanitizer, packed in safe containers.
  • If you have a large quantity of donations, please drop off in small batches so we may process your generous offerings.

At this time, our most needed items are:

  • children’s clothing
  • summer clothes
  • household items
  • back-to-school clothing
  • shoes
  • linens

Currently, we are NOT able to accept the following:

  • WINTER clothing (will begin in September)
  • Seasonal decorations
  • Furniture without prior approval
  • Baby cribs, walkers, bouncy chairs, etc.
  • Exercise equipment

Thank you for your patience as we continue to prioritize the safety of our staff, volunteers, and donors.
