Clothing and Household Donations Policy
We are grateful for your past donations and appreciate your desire to donate to us, rather than other charity organizations – but we ask that you help us by donating in a manner that allows us to sort through your items quickly and efficiently. This helps us get the items into the hands of our community! Please only donate what we accept and please only donate items that you would actually use or give to your own children – if they have outlived their usefulness, please don’t bring them to us.
What we accept:
- In season, gently used, clean clothing, shoes, outerwear and accessories (including handbags), for babies, children and adults – please NO underwear or business attire. NO HANGERS PLEASE
- Unopened personal hygiene products.
- Feminine hygiene products.

- Food for Bainbridge Community Food Pantry and/or our emergency pantry – non-perishable, non-expired food, boxed or canned.
We are unable to accept electronics or household items like kitchen items, linens, blankets, furniture or home décor items like vases, or artwork. We are also unable to accept baby furniture or items such as strollers or car seats. Please do not bring them to us as we will not accept them.
