Contact us today to arrange a pick up of your donation.  Due to high cost of fuel, we are limited in pick up radius. For a donation valued under about $500, we prefer in or near Cecil County, Maryland or New Castle County, Delaware. For larger value donations, we can send a truck up to 300 miles and/or arrange freight, depending on the situation.

You may also bring the items to an Equihab meeting or event.  Meetings are typically held in North East, MD 21901.

You may request we meet you in a central location such as a shopping center parking lot in/near Cecil County, Maryland.

Or, you may have the donation shipped to our business address which is listed on our contact page.

 

Items we cannot use are given to other non-profits, especially non-profits in our local area.   We work to maximize the use of anything given and to minimize useful items going to landfills.
