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. 

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!

Snowline:

Thank you for the personal support you gave to our beloved father Jerome. While it is always hard to say good-bye, the caregivers from Snowline helped make the end peaceful and loving.

We will never forget your generosity.

Love,

Berry Santos
