How and What to Donate
Stuff Redux accepts clean and reusable materials ranging from the practical to the funky. We look for donations that lend themselves to a variety of “reuses” including art projects, home improvement, gardening, and educational programming. Please review our guidelines to be sure that your donations meet our requirements:
– Please contact us at email@example.com to schedule your drop off.
– Donation pick ups may be arranged on a case-by-case basis.
– Donations are provisionally approved via email or phone contact. Final approval is given on site and is subject to staff discretion.
– Please make sure your donations are clean and organized and properly stored for transportation.
WE ALSO ACCEPT MONETARY DONATIONS!
These funds will go toward helping to keep this project alive! Our monetary donations are accepted through PayPal. If you’d like to make a monetary donation please click the button below.
We are also a 501c3 non-profit certified organization. So, keep your receipts!
