BOOK DONATIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

We are beginning to take a limited amount of donations. Our times and the number of our volunteers are restricted, so we can take MODEST amounts of books, CDs, and DVDs.  Please no more than 4 boxes.

Staff is not allowed to take in donations for us, so you need to contact us at our e-mail  friendsalbany@yahoo.com to make an appointment to meet a Friends volunteer.
   

RESELLABLE DONATIONS ONLY PLEASE!

Please do NOT DONATE items that are so worn that they cannot be sold.   For items that are not saleable, we suggest the recycle bin, or the El Cerrito Recycling Center.  Thank you for your understanding.
