How do I Prep and Drop off my Donations?
You can make a bigger impact when you donate, by following these 3 simple steps.
- Make sure all items are in new or like new condition. Please be considerate of our volunteers and do not donate items that have animal/ allergens on the garment.
- Place all donations in a bag that you are willing to part with. Please keep bags light enough for one person to easily carry (no more than 15 lbs each). Please note, we do not need hangers or items on hangers.
- Bring donations through the front door of ReFresh. There is a designated parking lot, accessible by a ramp on the corner of S. Brentwood Blvd. and Rose Ave. After parking, take the set of stairs next to the ramp to the front of ReFresh and drop off donations inside ReFresh. Need help dropping off your donations, after-hours donation or having trouble finding our boutique? Call us at 314-881-0331 so we can assist you. Thanks!
If you are donating more than six large bags or are a retailer please give us a call at 314-881-0331 to make drop-off arrangements. Thanks!
