We gratefully accept donated items for use within our projects or for distribution within needy communities in Liberia. We collect donated items at a facility in Salt Lake City, UT where they are stored until we have enough to fill a 40′ shipping container. This means it may be many months before your in-kind donation will actually be used by those who need it. All donated goods must be clean and in good working order, and cataloged thoroughly before they will be received.
Donated goods may be dropped off in person, or mailed to, the address below. We do not pay for shipping expenses, so sending donated goods will be at the donor’s expense. Please follow these instructions:
1. Inspect all items to make sure they are clean and in good repair
2. Pack items in groups of similar items within the package
3. Make a list of all groups of items in each package, including: Product description and material, weight, quantity, condition (new, or Used Grade A (excellent), Used Grade B (good), Used Grade C (fair), and Estimated Value). For new items we require the brand name and country of origin. For example
Package 1: 15 pounds, 12″x15″x22″
Used girls clothing, Grade B, 12 pounds, 29 pieces, Estimated Value $15.00
Used bedsheets, Grade B, 3 pounds, 5 pieces, Estimated Value $6.00
Package 2: 22 pounds, 15″x15″x15″
Used books, Grade B, 22 pounds, 18 pieces, Estimated Value $32.00
Make a copy of the list and put it inside the box, AND write the contents on the outside of the box (or tape a copy of the list permanently to the outside of the box).
4. Mail the package to:
