Donation Preparation: Small prep work at home makes a huge difference in handling the volume of items that are donated to Dorcas. Please separate clothes from linens, shoes, household items, etc. Keeping these items with other similar items will allow for a quicker drop-off experience.

General Directions: When you enter the Dorcas Plaza, continue to the right of the building and follow the signs to enter the drop-off lane. One of our Dorcas representatives will be happy to unload your items from your car. Please follow their directions for a safe and efficient drop-off. Remain in your car until a Dorcas representative is ready to assist you. Please have any personal items separated from items for donation.
