Share Our Spare has been working to update our procedures to ensure donor and staff safety in the wake of COVID-19. We will be instituting a no-contact pickup procedure until further notice. On the day of your pickup our truck driver will call you when he arrives at your location, please move any donations to the curb or front porch at this time if not there already. Our truck driver will then load your donations into the truck while wearing gloves and a mask, while maintaining social distancing. If you are feeling ill or have come in contact with anyone who has COVID-19 please contact us to reschedule your pickup. Please were a mask and practice social distancing as well. If you have any questions please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your $25 pick up fee helps us cover the cost of our van, gas and staff time. Thank you for your generous support!
If you need to cancel your pickup please do so at least 48 hours in advance of the day. You can do so by emailing our Program Coordinator Jorey at email@example.com. After 48 hours we will no longer be able to refund you your $25 pickup fee. Thank you for your cooperation.
