When you donate to Good Cheer, you help create a hunger-free community.

We’re building an addition to the food bank, which will house our new Community Connection Program where shoppers can get one-on-one help to access services like housing support, SNAP or WIC (food benefits), financial planning, and nutrition counseling.

OTHER WAYS TO HELP

 

Donate good condition items for our thrift stores.

The Good Cheer Donation Center is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 AM to 2 PM, or until our storage capacity has been reached for that day. We suggest arriving early. Please, DO NOT bring anything that you wouldn’t buy in the store. We don’t have the staff or the storage space to process damaged items or unwearable clothing.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but you may experience short delays as our crew processes donations.

  1. WEAR A MASK. THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL.
  2. All donations will be evaluated before we take them.
  3. Clothes should be in bags, all other items should be in boxes that can be opened and checked, and stacked.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Shop Good Cheer Thrift Stores.

Shopping at Good Cheer Thrift Stores feeds local families. Proceeds from our Thrift Stores supply about 65% of Good Cheer’s budget. Donating used-but-still-usable items helps our environment as well as helping ensure no one goes hungry on South Whidbey.

 

Donate Food

Food donations are accepted from 10 AM to 3 PM at the food bank. Our food donation wish list can be found here. For food safety reasons, please do not leave food donations when we are closed; you’ll only feed the squirrels.
If you are wanting to donate produce from you garden or fruit from trees on your property, please review the FAQs and Produce Donation Guidelines below.

Q. When should I drop off my donation?

A. You can drop off donations Monday – Friday between 10:00 AM and 3:30 PM. The food bank is currently closed Saturday & Sunday. Please do not leave donations outside when we are closed; you’ll only be feeding the squirrels.

Q. Can I donate homemade salsas and jams I made in my home kitchen?

A. Under current food safety rules, we cannot accept foods processed at home. However, if you would like to share a recipe, give a cooking demonstration, or volunteer to process fruits and vegetables here in our on-site kitchen, we’d love to have your help! Please email goodcheerfreshfoods@gmail.com or call  221-4868 and ask for the Produce Manager.

Q. I have chickens. Can I donate the eggs?

A. Yes, we love fresh egg donations! Clean eggs should be put into standard one dozen cartons and marked with the date of collection. If you don’t have cartons, we can provide some to you.

Q. How do I apply to have the Gleeful Gleaners come harvest fruit from my tree?

A. Please visit our website and fill out the fruit tree donor form at least 3 weeks before the fruit on your tree is ripe. The more heads up time you can give us, the more likely it is that we will be able to coordinate a volunteer picking crew to harvest your tree!

Q. Do you care if I grow organically?

A. We can use all fresh produce donations, organic or
