DONATIONS POLICY

WWLM seeks to provide some of life's basic necessities to those who are struggling and have no other means of assistance.

We hold a high standard and policy that ensures we are providing the best we can for those in need. This goal is accomplished by the kindness of business donors and community partners like you!

OUR STANDARD

QUALITY

It is our policy to share goods with those in need that are of the best quality possible to restore dignity and value in the midst of already difficult circumstances.

CLEANLINESS

Donations must be clean. Donations that are dirty, present strong odors, or are torn, worn, broken or unable to be tested for usability will not be accepted. We reserve the right to turn away donations that are not in new or gently used condition.

BALANCE

Consideration for the donation will be balanced by constituency need, facility space available, and staff and volunteer safety.

Our workers have the right to politely refuse items that do not comply with these standards.
