In-Kind Donations

When Helping Can Hurt

We love when our friends have items to donate to LOMC. Before you drop off an item please be aware of these items:

  • Does LOMC need it? Call or talk to us first.
  • Is it broken or at the end of life? We really can't use it then.
  • You may want to consider selling your item and donating the proceeds to LOMC.
  • We can't always guarantee we will hang on to it indefinitely. We'll do our best to get a long life out of your gift but in an active setting like LOMC things do get used and broken.

Get The Credit You Deserve!

When you donate an item (or items) to LOMC you might receive tax breaks.

  • We'll acknowledge the gift in a letter and/or email to you.
  • We can only describe the item (or items) you donated. We cannot place a dollar-value on your donation. You can specify the amount of your donation on your own tax-return (talk to a tax professional if you need help).


Be aware, the items on this list are generally larger dollar values.

Also consider our Amazon Charity List!
