One of the organizations goals is to develop a community workshop that teaches skills in general repair of household goods and equipment. Volunteers and staff members employed at the workshop repair donated items. It is designed to teach children, young adults and the underprivileged. Individuals gain hands-on skills in restoration and refurbishment.

Do you have a broken or warped ladder? Perhaps an old drill that doesn’t work? How about an old kayak that leaks? There’s someone out there that will use it.  We’ll take it, fix it, and give you a tax deductible receipt for your donation. Your old saw will go to a carpenter who can't afford a new one. That kayak will be given to an underprivileged child who may be on the U.S. Olympic team someday.

Making use of something worth nothing

It doesn't matter where it came from, everything has value to someone. We accept "perished" food from stores, excess from restaurants, broken, unsafe, obsolete equipment.  We provide an expedient way to discard of items. Where does it go next? To good use. We’ll give you a tax deduction for your donation and the peace of mind in knowing your donation is going to a worthy cause.

Waste Not Want Not Salvaging

The Value: 

You are an important part of helping the world. And all you have to is say "Here Ya Go!  
Waste Not Want Not Salvaging is a non-profit organization that salvages goods, equipment, material and food, for re-use and recycling.  If it's defective, broken or expired we can use it. We can fix it. Those in need can have it. Or hungry animals can eat it.  Just before an item is thrown out, pause a moment and ask, "Is there a way this can be used?"  Please help everyone and the earth by setting it aside.
