GBF members can donate their quality cast-offs to the Community Thrift Store (CTS) and GBF will receive a quarterly check based on the volume of items sold. This is a great way to support our Sangha, and the community. Bring your extra clothing and other items to CTS at 623 Valencia St between 10am and 5pm, any day of the week. The donation door is around the corner on Sycamore Alley (parallel to and between 17th and 18th) between Valencia and Mission. Tell the worker you are donating to GBF. Our Charity Code is 40.
Accepted donations are tagged with identifying codes and put out in the store. As items sell, a running total is kept for GBF donations. In order to remain on the list of beneficiaries, we must accumulate a gross sales total of $600 per quarter. Please make sure donated items are clean and in good condition. Pickup can be arranged within San Francisco for furniture, but major appliances, medical and exercise equipment, and other specific items are not accepted in any condition. If you have any questions about a donation, telephone CTS at 415.861.4910.
