Donations for the Workforce Development Center can be delivered to 7842 Richmond Hwy, Alexandria, VA 22306 Monday- Friday 10am – 6pm. For more information please call 703.360.9088 ext. 101.
Donations are received Monday - Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Back Porch Thrift Store located at 7838 Richmond Highway, Alexandria, VA 22306 (in the Crossroads Shopping Center next to Home Goods). For our pickup schedule and more information please call 703-799-3832.
The Back Porch Thrift Store welcomes the donation of items in good, gently used and working condition. If you are unsure whether an item fits this criteria, a good rule of thumb is to ask yourself, "Would I give this to someone I know?" or "Would I buy this item in this condition?"
UCM and the Back Porch do not set a valuation on your donation. That is the privilege and responsibility of the donor. For professional advice, please consult your tax advisor. For more information about the Back Porch Thrift Shop, please visit: http://www.backporchthrift.org/
