Used Item Donations

how donating works

With the help of our partners at Savers Thrift Stores, you can Give A Shirt and help fund one-to-one mentoring programs for Utah kids facing adversity. There are many ways you can donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah and even more reasons why you should!

  1. You help us!
  2. You help save valuable natural resources.
  3. You help keep items from landfills.
  4. You help reduce stress. Declutter!
  5. You help make somebody’s day. Your neighbors will benefit from your donations.

Local businesses host our donation bins to help make donating your unwanted items more convenient. Remember larger items cannot be left outside these bins, but can be donated at our Attended Donation Centers (see below). DONATION RECEIPT

Curbside Pick-Up

If you can’t make it to a bin or donation center, schedule a free pickup. On your scheduled pick-up day, identify your items with a sheet of paper marked “BBBS”. Place these donations on your curbside, clearly visible from the street by 8:00am. Please call us at 801-747-1050 if you are placing the items somewhere other than the curbside or if you live in a gated community.

Ways to Give

Fundraising Opportunities

• • • • •

Help Big Brothers Big Sisters raise money to support mentoring relationships. By choosing to
have a clothing drive at your place of work, you can contribute to our cause. We also partner
with youth-serving nonprofits and schools and share the to help those groups raise funds.

Group Service Projects
Eagle Scout (Boy Scout) or Silver Award (Girl Scout) Projects
Corporate Community Project
Youth Sports Team Fundraiser
PTA Fundraiser

How it works:

  • Your group members or employees solicit bags of clothing and small
    household items for donation.
  • We schedule a day/week to pick up the donated goods (barrels can be
    provided for multi-day drives)
  • We sell the goods to Savers thrift store and (for youth-serving groups) you get a check in the mail based on the pounds of goods collected.
