Gift In Kind Donations

Everyday we see people coming to The Scott Mission for help. Donations of food, clothing, and other supplies are always greatly appreciated.

FOOD

  • Baby diapers
  • Travel-sized toiletries (razors, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.)

TIP: Please put your donations in clear bags. This helps our staff easily identify what is in the bag without having to open it for easy sorting. Please ring the bell and wait to hand the donation to staff.

Note: We cannot take furniture items. Donation pickup services are currently not available.

If you are gathering clothes in a Clothing drive for Scott Mission we have box label you can use to promote it. You can  download it here.

Donations from businesses:

If you operate a business and you have items in bulk (large quantities only) you would like to share, please contact Ruel Quintero our Distribution Manager at rquintero@scottmission.com

Receipts for Gifts In Kind

We do issue tax receipts for food items that have been purchased and donated. We do not receipt gifts of used or new clothing. Below are the guidelines and steps you must complete to be eligible for a tax receipt:

  • You must ask for a tax receipt when dropping off food items.
  • The staff receiving the goods will verify the quantity and quality of the items donated and they will take photos of the goods received.
  • Please give the staff member the receipt/receipts that support the purchase of the items.
  • While you are there, the staff will complete the Gift in Kind donation form.
  • If your donation does not fit into the above criteria for a tax receipt, and you believe it is eligible for a tax receipt, please contact us at donations@scottmission.com before dropping off your donation.
