For Donating Goods

To Drop Off -- Bring goods to the Storehouse Monday, Friday, or Saturday morning between 9 and noon. Please, never leave your contributions outside the Storehouse when it is closed. The appearance it makes is not fair to our neighbors, and your donations could be ruined by bad weather.

To Have Items Picked Up -- Most pickups are made Saturday mornings after 9:00 A.M. As VOLUNTEERS and trucks are available, pickups may be made during the week; these pickups will always be scheduled with the donor. Call 865-481-0274 to provide your name, address, phone number, and goods to be picked up. An answering machine will record this information when a volunteer is not available to take your call.
