Rochester's Charity Giving Guide
Rochester's Community Wishbook provides a central source for Rochester NY-area charities to list their Items Needed and Volunteer Needs, as well as Special Events that help the agencies raise funds.
1. Use the listings to find a charity that needs your donated item or volunteer skill.
2. 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
Charities LOVE DONATED ITEMS - It's NOT Just About Money
The primary purpose of the Wishbook is to provide charities with donated ITEMS (and volunteers – see above) they need.
Your "clutter" may consist of many items that could be used by the less fortunate in our community.
It takes a little time and effort to donate those still-useful ITEMS directly to a charity that can use them NOW,
but it can be more rewarding to see those eyes light up.
Thanks for donating to a local agency, and for keeping good items out of the landfill
