Item Donations and Amazon Wish Lists

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I Donate Items to VOA Utah?

You have three options:

  • Gather your gently used or new items, sign up for a drop-off at one of our three centers, head over at your assigned time, and drop off your items with a VOA Utah Community Engagement staff member.
  • Purchase items via our pre-populated Amazon Wish Lists and have them sent directly to one of our donation dropoff centers.
  • Host a drive of your own. Gather a group of friends or coworkers and host a drive. When you are done, sign up for a drop-off.
  • In-kind Donation Disclaimer

    We are unable to accept the following: Used underwear, clothing in poor condition (dirty, torn, tattered, or otherwise damaged), large and small appliances, computers, furniture, mattresses, pillows, construction materials, flammable materials, electronics—including televisions or small appliances—or any other material over 75 pounds. We do not need baby items, including clothing, toys, furniture (walkers, swings, or play yards), car seats, or other equipment unless specifically requested. Seek other local organizations for such donations! 

    For the health and safety of our clients, we only accept canned and packaged food in original packaging. All food must be unexpired and in good condition with the actual food label intact.

    In general, we only accept items that our clients can use. Please limit your donations to a current VOA Utah needs list. If you have items not found on one of our lists in usable condition, please consider donating them to Deseret Industries.
