Thank you for thinking of Oberlin Community Services for donations. 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 around Oberlin that has our most pressing donation needs. Soaps, shampoos, toilet paper, and baby diapers are in high demand at OCS, and we greatly appreciation donations of those items.
We do accept donations of seasonally appropriate clothes (especially jackets,gloves, and boots in the winter).Unfortunately, we do not have a large amount of storage space. Please call to see if we have space for your items. The Oberlin Goodwill thrift store is also a great place to donate clothes.
On occasion, we have volunteer projects that can use materials for building and gardening.
If you have furniture and/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 people up.
