If CazCares is not open when you come, please place your donation in our Donation Closet, a large wooden shed, located directly outside the building to the right of the doors. If you are worried that your donation is too large or of a more fragile nature please come during our open hours from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday.
