Allen Community: non-food Donations

Because of our amazing community members and business partners, every day hundreds of people facing financial crisis receive help from Allen Community Outreach towards hunger relief, homelessness prevention, and programs that help them continue their education in order to get a better job and gain financial security. You can help by donating your gently used unwanted items, including clothes, shoes, home decor and furniture.

We are excited to announce our donation drop off is MOVING JULY 1!

Drop off has never been easier! ACO’s Processing Center will now be located next to City Hall just off of McDermott Dr. This New Location boasts, easier access, more space and a newly painted drive through lane!

Thank you for your support and helping us in our mission.
