Donation FAQs

Do you accept other clothing Items?

The short answer is yes, but at this time, we are very limited on space, so we are asking for mainly the items listed above that we can be as effective with the space that we do have available.

Do you accept used soap and shampoo?

Used bars of soap, no.

But bottles of shampoo and conditioner are ok. Please make sure they are cleaned off and not sticky on the outside of the bottle.
