Big Brothers Big Sisters is committed to clearing the path to a child’s best and brightest future. But we wouldn’t be able to provide any kind of assistance without the support of an ever-expanding network of committed donors. Big Brothers Big Sisters clothing donations, as well as small household items, that go to affiliates across the country have led to nearly two million children served over the past decade.
Our work is essential as it changes lives for the better. When people donate, they aren’t just giving clothes or household items, they’re investing in all of the different factors that allow us to build and sustain these meaningful matches.
To help BBBSLI become a self-sustaining organization and enable us to serve more children across Long Island, we established a Donation Center with a dedicated call center, to schedule free pickups, and fleet of a dozen trucks that travel across Long Island every day to pick up donations of clothing and small household items.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island Donation Center has an exclusive partnership with Savers Thrift Stores that turns those donations into much needed funds, of which 100 percent goes to support the mentoring agency.
The partnership with Savers helps BBBSLI support its team of case managers and other staff that provide mentoring services and activities to over 500 children across Long Island. Additionally, families in the mentoring program facing hardship can receive vouchers to shop at Long Island Savers stores for items they need at NO cost.
With these funds, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBBSLI) and 300 other affiliates across America can continue the country’s largest, most impactful youth-mentoring organization.
So, if you’re looking to donate, you can visit one of our many convenient bin locations across Long Island. Or, you can have everything picked up from your home by one of BBBSLI’s trucks. In fact, click here to schedule a pick-up.
Not to mention, if you’d rather give in other ways, you can also make a financial gift or sponsor an event like a golf tournament or fashion show. You can learn about all of the different ways to give here.
Big Brothers Big Sisters clothing donations are one of the most integral ways that we fund our mission, so consider donating today.
