SORRY: NO donations accepted until April 1, 2017.
We accept clean, non-toxic material donations from businesses and individuals on
Fridays & Saturdays,
10:30am - 5:30pm
To see what items we accept, please review our Materials List below.
WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANY CARDS, ENVELOPES, OR FABRICS
until FURTHER NOTICE; THANKS.
We have signed on
with the AmazonSmile program:
The link to below will take you to the Amazon website. Shop as you normally would: upon checkout,
AmazonSmile will donate .5%
of qualified purchases to
Art Parts Creative Reuse Center.
Since we don't operate like a thrift store, please familiarize yourself with the following donation procedures prior to delivering your materials to us. When you arrive with your donation, please wait while a staff member checks your items: we can't always accommodate everything due to space constraints, overstock, or items not on our Materials List. We're happy to answer calls at 720-379-5328 if you have questions about your items, or if you have a large quantity of materials; if we can't take it, we might know of another place that can. We also weigh each donation so that our waste diversion impact is measurable. Thanks for understanding when we also can't dispose of any unaccepted donations on your behalf because we have no trash service. After we've processed your donation, we'll provide you with a tax donation receipt.
All donations are 100% tax deductible.
Want to earn a 15% Off Preferred Donor coupon towards a future purchase at our store? Follow ALL guidelines below when preparing your donations for us:
1. Fill a minimum of one paper grocery sack or equivalent box with CLEAN items from our Materials List only.
2. Organize and bundle like items together, (like photos, etc.). Place small similar items (like buttons) in a clear ziplock bag. Organizing items by color is greatly appreciated but optional.
3. Stabilize glass in frames with masking tape and ensure that fragile items are protected from breakage.
4. Remove puzzle and board game pieces from their boxes and place in clear ziplock bags.
5. Glue sticks and bottles, paints, and similar liquids should be at least 1/2 full and still flowing and viable; NO dried or oozing glues, paint tubes or containers.
NO EXTERIOR OR SPRAY PAINTS OF ANY KIND.
6. NO food containers of any kind except for CLEAN, decorative, and vintage tins.
7. Pill bottles must be impeccably clean and free of labels. NO EXCEPTIONS.
9. SHARING THE STORIES IN YOUR STUFF is optional but deeply appreciated because it adds value to the humblest of items. Knowing where an item comes from -- its history and provenance -- transforms mere "things" into meaningful objects with a story to share, especially for artists. It can be anonymous. Or not. Please consider sharing your stories with us in a simple note tucked into your bag(s).
Donations must meet all of the criteria above to earn a Preferred Donor coupon. Coupon must be presented at check-out. Thanks for your attention to the details,
and for supporting Art Parts with your donations.
**PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING OUTSIDE OUR DOOR AFTER HOURS**

DID YOU KNOW....
* That in 2016, 71 cents of every dollar we earned went solely to pay our rent?
* That we are 99% volunteer-powered?
* That your financial support could help us hire a part-time intake manager, so that donation hiatuses would not have to be imposed when our intake room fills faster than our volunteer staff can process it?
* That it's difficult for new nonprofits like us to receive grants when we need it most, because we haven't yet proven ourselves as a long-term entity?
* That your financial support would help provide above-minimum-wage green jobs for teens and adults in our community?
YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS NEEDED!
