Donations and Financial
When and where can I drop off a donation?

If you would like to drop off a donation, you may stop in front of our building on Wayne Street. Please note that Wayne Street has been converted to two-way traffic. If you have a large amount of items to drop off, you may pull in to an unloading area behind our building on Central Avenue. The best time to drop off donations is weekdays from 9 AM - 4 PM. If another time works better for you, please call us at 419-224-6961 so we know to expect your visit.
