Instructions

Decide when and where you will host your donation drive. For questions or to discuss what kind of drive would be most helpful at the current time, please contact Volunteer Relations Assistant Aurilla Stevson at (310) 396-6468, ext. 332 Once you know what items you will be collecting, make signs and set up your collection boxes/bins at the location(s), clearly indicating what you are collecting, how long your collection will last, and that your collection will benefit the people served by St Joseph's. We suggest running your collection for at least two weeks. Tell friends, family, neighbors, teammates and others about your collection and encourage them to donate. Email and social media are great ways to share news of your drive. Collect items from the bins during the course of your collection drive. At the end of your collection period, contact us to arrange drop-off.
