Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do you need for material donations?

A: Our needs for material items are constantly changing. Currently our needs include new socks and underwear, travel size toiletries, and sandwiches for our outreach program.

Q: How do I donate?

A: We appreciate a heads up before you donate so we can be sure we’re available to take it.  Please call 303.447.1206 and then you can bring your items to our administrative office at 1443 Spruce St in Boulder.  If you have food items, please call Alex at 303.447.1206 and ask if the item is needed first.

Q: Can you pick up items from my location?

A: Unfortunately we don’t have the resources to pick up items. We appreciate your support in dropping things off!

Q: Do you take used clothing?

A: We ask that you donate used clothing to A Precious Child, a clothing bank where we can then select exactly what we need for our youth.

Q: Is my material donation tax deductible?

A: Yes! You determine the value of your item and we send you a receipt that you can use as a tax write-off. We’re not able to give you an estimate on the value of any items you donate; it’s up to you to decide the value you write off.

Q: Do I have to fill out the tax form even if I don't want a tax break?

A: We ask that you please fill it out. We track material donations for internal reasons, and the information is often used in grant writing. We like to be as accurate as we can and you can help us do that with the form. If you don’t want a receipt, simply check the box “I wish to remain anonymous.”

Q: I have something unusual—can I donate it?

A: We ask that you please call Alex at 303-447-1206 or email abergland@attentionhomes.org. If the item is furniture, we ask that you send a photo and let us know the dimensions, so we can determine if it fits our needs.
