Be a part of something big

Clothing Donation Center

Big Brothers Big Sisters happily collects donations of clothing, household items, and small furniture through drop-off locations, donation bin sites, scheduled pick-ups, and clothing drives.  The items are taken to Saver’s Thrift Stores where they provide funds to our organization and make low-cost clothing and other items available to the community.

It's not just a donation.  It's an investment in a child's future. 

We are committed to providing vulnerable children with positive adult role models, giving them the opportunity to achieve great things.  Your donation contributes to this goal by enabling us to provide our mentoring programs and services in your local community. 
Thank You for your support!

Our Donation Center could not function without our great staff and Board of Directors. Learn more >
