West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day

Next one May 12, 2018 – presented by West Seattle Blog

Unsold stuff to donate? Shopping to donate? Here’s who’ll be collecting

We hope nobody has leftovers. But some invariably do. And then there are the shoppers who generously go out and look for items that nonprofits need. So toward both those ends – here’s the list of those who have sent word about donation drives on sale day and in some cases beyond:

CLOTHES FOR THE CAUSE – Trailer at Alki Elementary School for dropoffs all weekend – details here

BOOK DRIVE FOR LOCAL SCHOOLSHere’s what is being sought, and the multiple ways you can donate books – not just this weekend, but beyond!

STUFF THE TRUCK: 9 am-5 pm on WSCGSD, Holy Rosary School again will have a truck accepting donations for St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores – details here.

STOP ‘N’ SHOP – The thrift store at the Senior Center of West Seattle will be accepting donations off the alley out back until 6 pm on Saturday – details here.

And while we haven’t heard from them directly, the Northwest Center and Goodwill trucks are in West Seattle too.

ADDED – GOT PLANT STARTS TO DONATE? Solid Ground needs some this year for community farms with which it works. Especially peppers, summer squash, tomatoes, cucumbers. So if you have any to donate post-sale, contact racheld@solid-ground.org to make arrangements.

Anybody else with a donation drive? Let us know ASAP so we can add – garagesale@westseattleblog.com – thanks!

    We appreciate you organizing this Garage Sale Day. It would have been nice if someone could have updated the information that the Senior Center of West Seattle was NOT actually taking furniture when I went to drop it off.

      Sorry; furniture is listed on their website https://sc-ws.org/stop-n-shop-thrift-store/ but we have absolutely no control over, and no way to get information about, whether donation-seekers change their mind, their plan, etc. They sent us a note asking if we’d tell people they’d be there two hours later than usual and that’s what we did. If I manage to hold the clarity of mind next year, I will tell people who contact us that it would be helpful for them to let us know what they are taking and not taking. – TR
