We often have thoughtful members of the community who want to make donations of clothing, food, personal hygiene items furniture, appliances and other household items. Unfortunately, we have limited storage space and are not always in need of these items. Please call us at (970) 641-2712 to make sure we are able to take your items before you bring them by our office. If we are unable to accept your items at the office, you can still use them to help us, just take them to:
Boom-A-Rang will accept your clothing items. Use our account number when you drop off your donations so that our account will be credited the money (call the office for our account number). If you have never used them for consignment before, speak to one of the employees and they will explain what you need to do. This allows us to take clients in need over to the store and allow them to choose the clothing that works for them!
Six Points Thrift Store accepts clothing and household items. Please call and check to make sure that they will take your items and for donation days/times. You don’t need to do anything special, just drop your items off in the designated area. When Project Hope has clients in need of household goods/clothing Six Points issues us a voucher so the client can choose the items that they need.
We have the answer for you! We collect used cell phones, that are either turned over to a program that refurbishes them and sends us a check; or some functioning, wiped phones can be used directly by clients.
