SHARE NELSON ACCEPTS DONATIONS

OF CLEAN AND FUNCTIONAL ITEMS

We are extremely grateful for all who donate their

pre-loved items to SHARE Nelson. 

It can be hard to let go of some things and would like to

thank you for choosing us to find a new home for them.

We could not support Our Daily Bread (Nelson's hot lunch program) without your help and at the same time, keeping reusable items out of the landfill. Thank you!

Over the years we have tried to sell just about everything, however some things just don't sell well. We have included a list of these items below along with how you can help us when you arrive with your items.

When items are left outside without our knowledge, they are subject to being affected by weather and other damage. Bags and boxes are often searched by others which makes an unsightly mess, thus rendering them as garbage and an extra expense for us.
