We do accept cans, bottles, metals and plastics; however, since we are a non-profit organization, we accept these items as a donation and do not “pay out” for them.   We DO NOT accept glass and plastic bottles.

Your donations make shopping at our thrift stores fun, inspiring, discovery-filled adventures while at the same time, supporting the important hospice care provided by our clinical team to patients and their families throughout Sacramento and El Dorado counties.


Two Ways to Donate:

  • Bring your gently used items to our Thrift Stores
  • Bring your recyclables to our Processing Center


Handle all your recycling needs whether it’s e-waste, metals or plastic! Before you dump it ... donate it!! Every donation helps the environment, the community and the compassionate work our patient care team provides to families in El Dorado County and the city of Folsom. Our Processing Center ensures nothing goes to waste! Last year, Snowline diverted nearly 8 million pounds from our local landfill!

We had visits from other Hospices at the skilled nursing home, but we decided on Snowline. I had no idea at the time how helpful you could be. The care Snowline provided was way beyond anything expected.

Now that Margie is in another place, I have a new life to organize, and will call to arrange grief counseling. I’m so sad, but Snowline has helped me through the most stressful part of my life.

Thankfully yours,

Mike Morrison
