Donation drop-offs are accepted at our space between 10:00-2:00pm only. All donation drop-offs must register in advance. Please be sure to confirm that the items you are giving us are items that we are currently accepting. That list can be found here. If you're planning to bring more than 2 bags or boxes, please let us know in advance in the notes so we can prepare. Each donation slot is for 30 minutes so plan to show up within 30 minutes of your selected start time.
Our address is 26 Horace St. Somerville, MA 02143
There's quite a bit of construction on our street and it's also a dead-end so if you're able to park on Ward St. and walk down, that's the best scenario. However if you have a lot of items to drop off, you may park in front of our garage door temporarily. There's 2 hour parking on Horace St. via South St. if needed. Please ring the doorbell when you've arrived. Please wear a mask!
