Donations of Needed Items

A reminder to our generous donors to drop off donated items at our Donation Centre not at the shelters.  To streamline the process and ensure efficiency, we kindly request donors to be mindful of the condition of their items. Please ensure donated clothes are thoroughly dry, and avoid donating items that have been through extreme conditions.  Your mindfulness not only saves valuable time but also ensures that every donation makes a meaningful impact. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of Anova.
