Donating materials to RAFT is easy!
Instead of throwing away or recycling,
1. Give us a Call
at 720-242-8833 or email Brittany@raftcolorado.org to see if your materials are appropriate for students and teachers. If you scroll down the page you will see a list of commonly donated items as well as items we can’t accept.
2. Bring It On Over
We accept small and large donations. We ask individuals to bring their donations in on:
First and Third Saturdays 10:00am – 5:00pm
That’s when we have volunteers prepared to support us with sorting and stocking! If the first Saturday of the month presents a problem, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make special arrangements. Thanks!
