Accepting Donations Through No-Contact, Drive-up Model Beginning July 22
A message from Megan Buchanan, our Director of Services & Implementation.
Beginning Wednesday, July 22 we’ll start accepting clothing and food donations every Monday and Wednesday from noon to 3 p.m. For the safety of everyone involved, it will be a no-contact, drive-up donation model.
We’re focused on getting people the clothes they need now and as efficiently as we can. It’s summertime and we need shorts, swimsuits, t-shirts and other warm-weather attire for every member of the family! Help us help our community by following these guidelines for clothing donations:
- Please bring up to two bags (or boxes) per vehicle of in-season, clean, like-new clothing and new, in-the-package socks and underwear. At this time, we can’t accept more than two bags or boxes.
- We won’t accept loose clothing. This includes items on hangers or in bins that you may need back. We also won’t accept any items that are not wearable.
- Donations are accepted Monday and Wednesday from noon to 3 p.m. Please ONLY donate during these times. We are unable to accommodate donations at other times due to our building being closed. Don’t leave donations outside our building.
We’ll also accept shelf-stable, non-perishable food items (especially the items on our Top 20 in 2020 list) and fresh garden produce. We cannot accept other perishable, refrigerated or frozen items.
Below are the three easy steps to make drive-up, no-contact donations.
- Pull your vehicle up to the back of our building.
- Donation attendants will guide you to the drop-off station for clothing and/or food.
- Please follow instructions from the donation attendants and signs to safely donate. If you’d like a receipt, they will be available.
We greatly appreciate the generosity of our community and look forward to receiving donations again.
