Inland Empire Donation Centers Guide


Hello Friends and Neighbors! 

Let’s be honest -- every once in a while we clean out our closet or garage, right? 

And during the holiday season, many of us end up with a surplus of "things" around the house, meaning it's time to usher out the old in favor of the new.

Getting rid of last season's clothing, old furniture, shoes we no longer wear and other items can become a hassle. And what do we do with the bags? Donating your goods to your local donation center benefits an individual and or family in numerous ways. 

Check out our Donation Centers Guide for ways in which you can donate items or funds to help your community.
