Salem WEST is taking drop-off donations by appointment ONLY!

Beginning Monday, June 8th, 2020 all donations will be looked at by a staff member. A detailed list of items we do and do not take is located on our website under “Donations”. We have the right to refuse any item.

If you have any questions about donating or would like to schedule a drop off, please call 218-534-4962. Photos of furniture is appreciated – please email them to west@salemdwd.org.

 
Salem WEST’s mission is to help families and individuals by providing new/gently used items to help fulfill their basic needs. As Salem WEST has grown and become more visible, we have noticed that not all the donations are helping us fulfill our mission, but they are helping to quickly fill our dumpsters! Due to this, we will be much more selective in the items we accept.
 
 
We are currently looking for the following:
 
Metal Bed Frames – all sizes
Dressers/chest of drawers
Sofas/Futons – NOT sleepers or recliners please!
Love seats
End tables/night stands/coffee tables
Pots, pans, bakeware
Toasters
Microwaves
Non-feather bed pillows
 

 

Volunteering at Salem WEST

Salem WEST and The Mustard Seed are always looking for people interested in donating their time to help support our missions in the community. Salem WEST has a variety of volunteer opportunities available. Delivery volunteers go out into the community on a weekly basis delivering furniture and other household goods to families and individuals in the community who have been referred to Salem WEST as having a need. Activities include loading the truck and trailer for deliveries, unloading the items to families, and picking up donations. Delivery volunteers also unload donations at the end of the day. Volunteers who work at the Salem WEST building help with putting orders together for delivery or pick up, sorting donations, washing and sorting clothing, washing and pricing items for the Mustard Seed, testing lamps and appliances, making sets of dishes, silverware and sheets, and general organizing.
