If the item does not work properly, we will recycle it. If it does work, the fee will be a donation to Sofas for Service.

We can always use monetary donations. Cash donations can be given for specific needs if donor desires (beds, gas, warehouse rent, etc.) Unspecified cash donations will be split by using 40% for new bed purchases and the remainder for general operating expenses and occasionally for special purchases.
