Donation Drop Off
The donation room is always open. Drop off your items at any time with our thanks. We are not able to accept microwaves, TVs, large appliances, large furniture, beds, or mattresses.

As a courtesy to our elderly volunteers who have difficulty moving large items, please do not leave donations in oversized bags, boxes, or tubs.
