If you have any doubt about the quality of the item, ask yourself would you gift this item to another person? Would you like to receive this item? If you are in doubt, please do not include the item in your donations.  We are working hard to find items that are needed and that give dignity to the recipient. 

The needs of nonprofits in our region are great and further complicated by  COVID-19. Serve the City - Carlisle and GiveNKind - Carlisle-Bethlehem Chapter, recently partnered to create the GiveNKind Center where donations of new and gently used items can be collected, organized, and distributed free of charge to nonprofits in our region. Thanks to the generosity of the Cumberland County Housing and Redevelopment Authorities we now have a place to call home. 

Please consider donating items from the list above to support individuals and families in need. Donated items will be quarantined for 72 hours, organized and made available to IRS registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits may register now to to receive donations.

With social distancing measures in mind, please place donations in your trunk. Volunteers will unload your vehicle and a tax donation receipt will be emailed to you. 


If you or a family member has been sick with symptoms of COVID-19, please do not donate at this time.
