How to Donate Gently Used Items 

Thank you for your interest in donating 
If you would like to donate used items, we encourage you to donate to Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNN) as CCNN is our primary partner for gently used donations. CCNN launders and treats linens and clothing to ensure it is appropriate for reuse/donation. We have set up a process to request linens from CCNN for participants moving into housing, as part of a move-in box. Catholic Charities also provides clothing, shoes, jackets, hats, etc. to participants; on-site, on a weekly basis.
