Donating Items

Donations can be delivered to the Mission on weekdays from 9 AM - 4 PM or weekends from 10 AM - 3 PM. If you need to bring items outside of those times, please call us at 419-224-6961 so we know to expect you. Our staff are usually busier with ministry activities later in the day, so it may take longer to assist you during those times. If you have a large amount of items to donate and would like to request a pickup, please contact us.
