DONATION OF CLOTHING AND OTHER GOODS

IMPORTANT! Specific Days and Hours for Donating Goods
We love receiving your donations of clothing, household goods, and other items because this makes SMILE possible! But we can receive them only during the days and times listed below.

Donations are accepted ONLY during the following hours of operation:
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday: 10 am - 1:30 pm
Saturdays: 9 am - 11:15 am

    We also accept donations of canned and packaged foods during these hours.
