Charity Donation Pick Up

Our pick up of donated items is scheduled by appointment only and it is a limited service because it is staffed by volunteers. Please call: (781) 944.9797 to review what you have and add you name to our pick up schedule.

We do not have a donation box outside our facility so any donations must be brought to us during our normal business hours.

All donated goods must be able to be easily carried by two people.

We reserve the right to refuse items that we know will not be suitable for our clients’ needs. We are often outfitting small spaces. If you have any questions, please call and leave us a message if we are unable to take your call. All calls are returned.
