The following Donation Centers are currently open: Bonita, Carmel Valley, La Costa, Lakeside, Mira Mesa, Oceanside at College, Point Loma.  The donation center hours are 8:30 am to 2 pm daily.

We are currently providing a contact free donation experience.  Donors are asked to sort their donations into two categories (clothing and non-clothing). Donors will place presorted donations into marked bins upon arrival. Facial coverings and 6 ft. social distancing are being practiced at all of our locations.  Please save your furniture and electronics as we are unable to accept them at this time.

We welcome your monetary donations, vehicles, real property and legacy gifts too.  Last year, over 90 percent of our revenue came from your generous donations.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
