Donate Goods & Materials

Since the Bethlehem Center is a nonprofit organization, we operate heavily on donations from our supporters and the community at large. All in-kind donations are tax-deductible, and donations are supplied with a donation receipt at the time of donation. Always see your tax specialist for specific details.

Bethlehem Center operates two separate and unique thrift stores. Our original thrift store is located at 1638 N. Dinuba Blvd, and provides shopping opportunities for the neighborhood and accepts clothing vouchers.

SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR CORPORATE SPONSORS

1/43

We would love to add you name to our list of businesses that go above and beyond.  Please call us at (559) 734-1572 and we will set up a time to explore how you can support our mission.

Surplus Contributions Are Welcome

 

We know that in today's competitive marketplace, companies and suppliers may overstock perishable items.  While a challenge for the local merchant or packing house, it can help deliver critical goods and services to those have the most need.  We have limited cold storage (fresh and frozen), but because of the volume of food panty boxes we complete, we can use all the items you wish to donate.  

 

A couple of important points:

  • packaged and canned materials must clearly be marked withe the content and use by date.  We can not distribute stale dated materials.

  • we welcome frozen products, however they should be able to be prepared with a stove or oven since many of our families may not have access to microwave ovens.

Fresh goods like bread, tortillas, pasta are a welcome addition to a healthy and balanced diet for those in the most critical of needs.

Have clothes, food, electronics or furniture to donate? All donations can be dropped off at the Bethlehem Center, and will then be merchandised and distributed to one of the two store locations.

I needed clothes and you clothed me.
