In-Kind & Donation Drives

Community Action depends on the generous donations of individuals, corporations, and foundations to support the less fortunate people in this community. Donations of goods and services are a great way to support families who are often lacking the basic necessities to live. Does your church, business, school or civic club want to do a donation drive? Contact us for lists and project ideas to help meet your community service goals.

Due to limited storage space at Community Action, please inquire first before dropping off items! Don’t see an item on the list? Please contact us to see if we have a placement for your gift: VolunteerCenter@CommunityActionSkagit.org or (360)588-5731.
