- Wear protective equipment. Wear a mask when you are around anything you may donate. Homemade masks are acceptable.
- Wash your hands. Wash your hands thoroughly before touching anything you may donate. Be mindful to not touch your face.
- Collect your items. Stick all items to be donated in a plastic bag. Close the plastic bag between fillings.
- Provide information. Seal the bag and label it with the following info:
- Date/Time of sealing the bag
- What items you are donating
- Quantity of items donated
how to Safely receive donations
With sanitizing equipment in short supply, spraying donations with alcohol or bleach is not scale-able.
If you are receiving donations, we recommend, if time allows, not opening them until 3 days after they were sealed to limit the spread of COVID-19 in your facility.
