Please bring all apparel freshly laundered, in a box, bin or basket.  
We will let you in on a secret...we aren't able to purchase very much that
has been stuffed into trash bags due to excessive wrinkling and odors.
We are a "SAME DAY PROCESS".  Pick up your cash and passed-on items the same day you drop them off or they will be donated due to lack of space.  
We always return the same containers to you that you bring items in.
