Donation StationWhether you are cleaning out a closet or responding to one of our seasonal drives, you can bring all your donations to one place!  The Donation station is a small room located across from the bathrooms in building A (near the Information Station).  Please donate items to the appropriate bin or receptacle.  Below are some descriptions to help you decide where your items should go.  Even small things can add up to make a big difference for our community and our world!
