*We kindly request that you prepare your donations in clear plastic bags when possible so that contents are visible and can be easily identified. Please ensure all clothing is clean. Thank you for your understanding.

Follow these 3 easy steps when dropping off donations:

1. Bring your donation to the front door (Unit #1)

We are happy to provide a tax receipt for new items accompanied by proof of purchase.
Please be aware that if we cannot use the items you provide (ex. out of season or don’t meet the needs of the clients) we may choose to pass these items on to other charities to utilize. If you have items for donation that are not on our list, please feel free to call us if you think we might be interested.

Ve’ahavta does not pick up donations. If you are a corporation or otherwise have a large amount of goods to donate please reach out to to discuss.
