Donation Procedures

We are very grateful to the community for their generous donations. These contributions help us provide much needed support to our clients. Our new donations procedures allows us to continue to accept these items, while still providing invaluable direct services to our clients.  We no longer have the capacity to accept donations beyond designated dates and times or items on our accepted items list. We appreciate your understanding.

During our designated dates and times for accepting donations, donations will be accepted through the front entrance on 201 W. Main Street in Medford. We will no long use the side entrance on Grape Street. To drop off items, park in front of the building in the loading/unloading zone, put your blinkers on, and call 541-779-2393 ext. 200. The person who answers will alert the staff or volunteer on duty. They will come down and help you bring in the donation. Please be advised that our staff and volunteers cannot lift anything more than 5 lbs. Please pack your items accordingly, or be willing to carry heavier items. We also have a small cart that can be used by donors to bring in contributions.

If you cannot drop off donations during our scheduled time or have items that we cannot accept, please make your donation to another worthy cause. We suggest making your donation to Goodwill. Goodwill is a generous partner of Community Works and provides our clients with vouchers to use in their stores to purchase any items that we cannot provide.
