DONATION DRIVE FUNDRAISER

Does your community group, school, organization, or other nonprofit group need to raise revenue? Donation Drive Fundraisers are a fun and easy way to raise money for your nonprofit organization by collecting clothing and household items. Contact Savers for more information.

We are so thrilled that the Savers Donation Drive was such a success. The Highland Families loved this fundraiser. There are able to donate household items to a worthy charity, raise funds for their child’s school, and clean their home. It does not get any better! We hope to partner with you often in the future.
