We are very flexible as to when and how often you can come in. If you can donate your time for events only, maybe once a month, or can come every week, we will work with you to find the right job.

There is a form for you to fill out giving us temporary custody of your item after which the item will go before our Collection's Committee and our Board of Trustees. If we feel it fits our mission and we are able to properly store and care for the item, we will have you fill out a Deed of Gift. Please make sure you have the time to fill out paperwork.
