Donations of books and clothing are part of the critical foundation of our youth-run business. Your donations help empower youth to “Do the work” to make positive changes in their lives. Together we can change the world. Give with purpose. Give deserving young adults hope for a better future.

We are a 501c3 organization

All donations are tax-deductible

EIN:85-2982372

We accept books, New or gently used clean clothing and shoes ( We do not accept textbooks over 10 years old, encyclopedias, VHS tapes, audio cassettes, magazines/periodicals or mass market produced paperback books)

Your donation goes directly to our young adults as they manage Better Bound On-line Store and work to achieve their personal self development and or educational goals.

As our young adults work receiving, inspecting, costing, photographing and describing donated items into the system for resale, they are learning valuable work skills, computer skills, photography skills, retail and communication skills.

Donations that we cannot sell are donated to other non profits or community needs. Quality donated items are scanned into inventory and properly identified and stored until sold. Youth then package and postage for appropriate shipping.

Thanks to you “Work really works”.
