When you have items to donate, 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.  





Get Involved!


We always need volunteers, and there are always plenty of interesting tasks! We especially need volunteers to help sort our large backlog of books.

Sorting and pricing is a very important task.  Help us out!
