The Village appreciates that our residents want to help others and not add to landfills. However, we ask that you not utilize a donation box until you verify that it is an authorized donation box.
Please check with the property owner to verify the placement of the box was authorized prior to using it. Most of these boxes have not been and the donations placed in them never reach the people who need them.
Property owners have to remove unauthorized boxes, costing them time and money. Many times the items placed in them aren’t picked up. This causes the items to spill out and blow around creating an unsightly mess. While the boxes may have contact information on them, typically when called, the contact is unreachable and untraceable.
We urge you to always double check before donating whether it be in a “donation” box or funds to a cause.
