We gratefully accept fresh produce, unopened packages of meat, cheese and other refrigerated items, non-perishable food, household cleaning products and personal hygiene items. We have a monthly bulletin posted at Oberlin IGA that has our most pressing donation needs. Healthy foods are generally preferred. These items are offered at our daily Choice Pantry.
Soaps, shampoos, toilet paper, baby diapers and other toiletries are also in high demand at OCS.
We do accept donations of seasonally appropriate clothes (especially jackets,gloves, and boots in the winter). However, we do not have a large amount of storage space. Please call to see if we have space for your items. The Oberlin Goodwill is also a great place to donate clothes.
On occasion, we can use materials for building and gardening.
If you have furniture or appliances to donate, please give us a call. We keep a list of those in need of particular items and will try our best to match the items to those who request them.
