Where to Donate
We try to make donating to us as convenient as possible.
Below are PCM’s donation location options.
This is the hub for our donations and the best place to bring your housewares, furniture, kids stuff, personal care items, non-perishable food, and clothing. We ask that non-clothing items be in usable and working order.
We have several Toss Box locations around town, for wearable and textile donations.
Please call 402-475-1303 to confirm box locations, as they occasionally change. We are always working on updating the map.
27th & Pine Lake
84th & Holdrege
50th & O Street
70th & Pioneers
56th & Old Cheney
70th & Pioneers
63rd & Havelock
If you have a lot of donations for the Shelter, it is best to put them on our back dock (on the north side of the building). If possible, it is best to donate any large items of furniture or large donations at our Help Center (unless arrangements have been made with Shelter staff.)
