Welcome to Rochester's

Your Guide to Charities in and around Rochester, NY

                          ... linking item donors and volunteers to local nonprofit agencies

The Wishbook features Wish Lists of Items Needed and Volunteers Needed by more than 175 Rochester-area charitable agencies.

Use the listings to find a charity that needs your donated item or volunteer skill. Follow the link to the agency's page, and call or email the agency to arrange for delivery or pickup of a listed item, or for details on volunteering.

Donated items should be clean, useable, and in good condition, with no missing pieces or pages (puzzles, games, books, etc.). Clothing should be clean, and not torn or stained. When in doubt, contact the charity

NEED HELP GETTING DONATIONS TO CHARITIES? 
If you don’t drive and have Wish List items to donate, we may be able to deliver the items for you: light loads only (up to 25-30 lbs) and no bulky items that will not fit in a normal-size vehicle.
You choose the charity from the Wishbook listings, email or call their contact person to be sure the items are still needed, and email us at wishbook@rochester.rr.com with the details.
NOTE: This is a limited service and is intended only for those who have no other means of delivering the items.
