Donation Guidelines

Thank you for your generosity and support for our ministry. Here are some guidelines to make this service as efficient as possible. 

  • PLEASE drop off donations ONLY during operating hours. 

    • Thursday & Friday 1pm-6pm, Saturday 11am-4pm​

  • DO NOT LEAVE DONATIONS OUTSIDE THE BUILDING

  • If you have a substantial donation (more than two-garbage-bags-sized donation), please call ahead (or text) to see if we have space, our storage capacity is very limited.

  • A simple guide to this process is "if I wouldn't be willing to buy it, even for $1, I probably shouldn't donate it to the Lost & Found." 

DO NOT DONATE:

  • strollers*

  • cribs*

  • car seats*

  • broken toys 

  • games/puzzles with missing pieces 

  • bedding

  • bed frames

  • mattresses

  • curtains

  • unpackaged tablecloths

  • large appliances

  • appliances with missing/broken pieces

  • upholstered furniture 

  • stuffed animals

  • stained or dirty clothing 

  • ripped or damaged clothing (unless it's "supposed" to be)

  • anything that smells like mold, cigarettes, or strong perfumes

*These items cannot legally be resold due to recalls and updated safety regulations.
