    Hi Rita,

    Thank you for reaching out and for thinking of Project Safe when donating your items! We would love to receive your items. You can drop them off at the thrift store at 995 Hawthorne Ave., Athens, GA 30606 or have them pick them up by calling them at (706) 425-8863. Let them know that you are donating them to the shelter and we will have someone from the shelter pick them up.

    Thank you!

    If someone can call me or email me back, I have some questions regarding the room adoptions.

    Hi, I am wondering if you might be interested in some children’s items I have. First, I have several handmade (mostly knit) baby blankets. Some of these were never even used – apparently we have lots of relatives that like to knit. I also have a box of coloring pages, worksheets, activity pages, etc. that my children have outgrown. I’m sure that I could wrangle up some markers and crayons to go with them. Is that something that you could use? I’m not really sure how your shelter works, but I saw art supplies on your donations wish list. Along that vein, I also have a bunch of picture and early reader books that my kids are finished with. Lastly, we have some stuffed animals, mostly small, that need new homes. We are not a pet free home (we have a dog), but we are a smoke free environment. If you are interested in any of these things, please let me know. If there are any other children’s items that you are in need of, let me know that as well. We are constantly outgrowing things around here.

    Lastly, I have some kitchen items that you might be able to use: pots, baking dishes, and some glasses.

Our thrift store would be happy to take those items you mentioned! We always accept new or gently used items there, with few exceptions. If you wish for your donation to go directly to our emergency shelter, please indicate that on the donation itself. Our thrift store is located at 995 Hawthorne Avenue in Athens (next to the Bell’s shopping center). For any specific questions about donations, please call the store at 706-425-8863. Again, thank you so much for your supporting survivors through donations ๐Ÿ™‚
