We’re Open for No-Contact Donation Drop-Offs!


From July 1 – August 12, our headquarters at 6111 Melrose Avenue will be open every Wednesday morning from 10 – 12 for outdoor, no-contact drop-offs. Each week we will highlight something we especially need to give to our nonprofit partners – see schedule below. Some must be new, some can be gently used. (We’ll let you know.)

Important Information:

1. All drop-offs will be outside. There will be tables and dollies set up outside.
2. The donor is responsible for bringing items out of the car. Big Sunday staff will bring items in after donor leaves to ensure no-contact.
3. Everyone must wear a mask. We will have hand sanitizer if you need it.
4. It is encouraged to bring items we are specifically collecting that week. But yes, you can bring other things, too.
5. We are hoping to collect at least 250 items each week.
6. If you don’t want to drop things off, but you’d like to contribute to these requested items, great! Please donate here.
