PLEASE DON'T DONATE JUNK


If there’s something you’re thinking of donating, first ask yourself if it would be useful to someone in need. If it’s unusable or broken beyond repair, it isn’t worth donating.

If you’re unsure how useful the item is, call us and ask if we'll accept it. If you can’t donate it, contact a junk removal company to take it off your hands instead.

Currently, we are seeking monetary donations, to purchase an actual space/land to operate our mission of purpose for the community at large. For example if you visit our eBay page we are selling items that help go towards our mission. So just the smallest in-kind donation makes a huge impact on someone's life. Please view the appropriate link that is best for you and help us purchase/build a place to call home. Kids will have a safe place to visit and learn effective ways of coping and avoidance of negative issues.
