HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Volunteers fulfill all the essential roles that keep Household Goods running!  Donations are so important.  Remember - your "extra" can be someone's "only."

Sound like fun?VIEW INSTRUCTIONS to get started.
  1. Ask your parents which closets, cupboards you can clean, organize and cull items to donate to Household Goods.  
  2. Please set these items aside in a box.
  3. The Center has now re-opened for donations BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
  4. Due to Covid-19, we have made the following changes to our donation drop-off process in order to provide the safest experience possible for you, our volunteers, and our clients.
  5. Please be patient. To maintain social distancing, we will  have fewer volunteers than in the past. Safety comes first, and the drop-off process may take longer than usual.

    Sign up here.  Find the date that you are interested in, click the orange Sign Up box, then the checkbox, and then click Submit and Sign Up on the bottom of the page to fill out the form.

    If a date shows availability, but is locked we cannot add any additional drop-offs. We apologize for the inconvenience.
