Approval of Furniture and Large Items:  Before a pick-up will be scheduled, we must approve the items to be donated or dropped off.  Approval will be based on photographs which you may upload on the form below.  Professional movers pick up large items and furniture on Wednesdays. We welcome monetary donations to offset the cost of the professional furniture pick-ups.  This is optional, of course, although every cent we save goes to help the children in our care!

If you are unable to drop off your donation during our warehouse hours, Settlement Club volunteers pick up donations using their personal vehicles.  Handling and loading the donated items must be manageable by one person.  Items should be placed in bags or boxes.  We understand that things such as large artwork, vacuum cleaners, floor lamps, can’t be boxed.   Be sure to let us know if any such items are included in your donation.
