Collection reductions to some donated item….
If you have been to our center lately to donate you will notice that our warehouse is packed to the ceilings and we are exploding out of our building. This means we have to limit some of the items we collect.
At this time we can no longer accept plastic containers of any kind, Styrofoam including peanuts, toilet and paper towel rolls, long cardboard tubes, used wax candles, wallpaper & fabric sample books, used greeting cards new are still welcome, office file folders, in and out trays and rolodex . We are also full of computer keyboards, cd cases and video tapes, staplers and tape dispenser however, tape and staples are still welcome. Please call if you have a rather large item to donate to see if we have the room for it.
We feel so bad that we have to limit some of what we take in. We wish we had a larger building to accommodate everything. We know you believe in our mission. We are currently looking to find a larger building but it takes funds to make it happen. In the future months look for interesting fundraising events we are planning to generate funds for a move. If anyone knows of a suitable building please send us the contact information. Another way you can help is to assist us in organizing our warehouse to make more room. If there is any time you can give it would be greatly appreciated.
