Why Donate to P.A.T.? Support local charities and clean out items around the house that you really don’t need. We will provide you with a tax-deductible receipt. Are you moving? Downsizing? Don’t hang on to things you no longer need.

Whether you are shopping or donating, we want you to know how much we appreciate your help. To further assist us, please check the list to the right for items we can no longer accept as donations. These are items that we get more of than we can handle or have not been able to effectively sell in the past. As always, your continued support along with your cooperation with these guidelines will enable PAT to be even more effective in the future.
