Projects and organizations that are inclusive and directly benefit the local community
DONATION PICK-UP PROCESS
Donation recipients should be aware that the Rebuilding Center’s inventory changes constantly. Materials approved for donations are not always available. If your desired materials are not in stock, consider using available alternative materials or backup sources. Please plan on gathering your full donation in one visit to our store at 3625 N Mississippi Avenue. Also, note that we generally limit our lumber donations to a maximum of $100, pending availability.
Approved donation recipients will be assigned a ReBuilding Center staff member as a primary contact to walk through the store to identify, select, record, and load materials approved for donation.
Donation recipients are asked to pick up their donations within 10 days after approval, ideally on a weekday, unless other special arrangements have been made.
Please limit your requests to two per calendar year, so that we can provide donations to as many individuals and organizations as possible. Thank you.
end of PROJECT REPORT
To help the Rebuilding Center document the community benefits of its donations, promote reuse projects, and inspire new ideas, we ask donation recipients to provide a very brief report, ideally with photos, at the conclusion of the project. Please email your report, including images, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
