Collection reductions to some donated item….

explodeIf 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 for a short while.

sad-face 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. 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.
