Please note: We are unable to accept damaged or unlabeled cans, perishable items, homemade items, noncommercially canned or packaged items, open or used items.
In order to improve our operations and service to customers, we are also currently in need of the following items:
-Stackable washer and dryer. Laundry we wash every day includes towels and rags, volunteer aprons, and gloves. Our current washer and dryer are rather old and often malfunction.
-Oven/stove. Since volunteers work through the afternoon, we like to prepare lunch for them so they can have something nice to eat during their breaks. We need a new oven and stove if we want to continue providing hot food as part of our volunteer appreciation efforts.
-Over-the-range Microwave We have a microwave in our kitchen/break room so volunteers and staff may warm up their lunches or cups of tea, etc. Several buttons on our current microwave do not work, and when we use the exhaust fan (while volunteers cook lunch), it often makes a very loud noise.
-Air Compressor. It would be helpful for us to have our own air compressor so we can make sure the tires in our vans are filled properly and safely since we do so much driving to pick up donations. It will save us time as compared to always going to other locations to fill tires.
