The Rochester Mutual Aid Network gets requests for all kinds of things; clothes, furniture, food. We do our best to meet every request that comes in to the Network. Sometimes we can buy things outright with money that has been donated. Other times, we try and source items from the community. That's where you come in!
On this page, you'll be able to let us know about any items you'd like to donate to the community. Any items you add will go into our database, and when requests come in looking for items, we'll refer to that database first. If it turns out you've listed an item we need to fulfill a request, we'll get in contact with you to arrange a pick up. Then our volunteers can get that item to whomever needs it! We can help our community meet its needs while cutting down on some clutter at your place. Win-win!
If you've already added some items to our database, they will appear below. This will give you an opportunity to edit those items, or remove them from our database.
Lastly, if you can, you can donate money to the Network here. We use donated funds to purchase items that we can't otherwise source.
The reason we ask people looking to donate to make an account is so that it's easier for you to 1) add more items later and 2) remove any items that you may have added but no longer have available. For example, if you list a piece of furniture but your friend ends up coming over to grab it instead of us, you can just remove it from our database, no problem. And we ask for your contact information so our volunteers have it on hand for when they need to arrange pick up.
