Making Material Donations

Figuring out who accepts material donations and what items they need most can be a daunting task.  We have developed this page to help you find the best match for your efforts to contribute.  Please note that this page is a work in progress, so new agencies and current needs will be updated.  If you represent a non-profit organization that would like to be included on our list, please email us at info@handsonsacto.org.


How to Use This Information

Interested in collecting donations with co-workers or friends?  Check out the "New items needed" under each of the agency listings to see what types of materials are needed at each organization.. 

Doing some spring (or winter) cleaning?  Check out the items under “Other" to see which organizations can make use of your old or gently used items.  For example, if you want to donate a coffee table, look for organizations that accept furniture.

Giving is great, but make sure to “give responsibly.”  Please use common sense when deciding if an item is in good enough condition.  For example, stained or damaged clothing probably shouldn’t make the cut!

Once you find the organization you want to support, make sure to check their website and/or contact them to find out if the specific items are still needed and where and when donations are accepted.  It is important to confirm that the items you want to donate are still needed before bringing them to the site.
