TO DROP OFF A DONATION

Our offices are located at 2025 9th Ave., on the corner of 9th Ave. and Lenora. We are roughly two blocks south of the Whole Foods on Denny. For a map to our offices, please click here.

To drop off a donation, please pull into our parking garage. The entrance is on 9th Ave. and is marked “Mobile Services.” After you enter, you will see a blue door ahead of you to the right. You may also see mobile services trucks parked by the door. Pull into an adjacent space and ring the bell at the door. We will come out with a cart and pick your donation up.
