Donate Items to Support the Community

Donations from the community help us support people in need and raise funds for our charitable programs. We accept a wide variety of clothing, household items, appliances, electronics and more at our donation centers. 

Please note: SVdP pays to dispose of items that cannot be reused or recycled, which takes away from our charitable mission. We appreciate the support of our community! 

Donation Item Updates

As of 3/16/2021, NO mattresses are accepted and donation pick-up is limited to major appliances.
We do accept all other types of donations, including appliances, at the discretion of staff at the donation center.
Individuals must drop their mattresses off at a Lane County Waste Transfer Station
