Guidelines to Consider:

  • Donations are accepted during our business hours: Monday – Friday, 8:30AM-5:00PM. All donations should be brought to our main entrance at 447 South Ave (corner of South Ave and Comfort St). Unfortunately, at this time we do not have the ability to pick up donations.
  • Our volunteer staff member will provide you with a form in which the donor can list items being donated.  Valuation of all in-kind donations is, by law, the responsibility of the donor.  VOC can only acknowledge receipt of your donations, not estimate its market value.
  • For the health and safety of our staff, clients, and volunteers we do ask that items are new or gently used, and clean.
  • If donation(s) contain food items, please check expiration dates.
  • We DO NOT accept:
    • Medical supplies (canes, walkers, motorized scooters or wheelchairs, hospital beds, shower chairs, etc.)
