“Donating a item?” Submission Form
Please fill out the form below and let us know what items you would like to donate.
Please expect 2-5 days when awaiting reply in some circumstances. Pick-ups are primarily done on Thursday evenings or weekends. Only items in very good condition are accepted and BOTGNY only accepts what we know we can place with a Veteran in a timely manner. Our biggest needs are dressers, kitchen sets, living room sets, night & end tables. Kitchenware. Microwaves. We rarely accept entertainment centers, TV’s, large dining room sets and china closets. We never accept pre-owned mattresses. Your donations will be going towards helping a Veteran transition into a new start on life, who was determined previously as homeless and now has recently acquired housing through the VA’s HUD VASH program.
We would like to remind everyone that we are a Volunteer based organization. No employees and the organization only has volunteers on Weekday evenings (which are all in-house program related) and weekend days. Pantry programs and pickups along with deliveries to Our Veterans are done primarily on weekends with the priority being delivering food, furniture and mattresses to these Veteran & Military families in need. This could result in pledged donation pick-ups taking more scheduling than expected along with postponements.
Boots on the Ground NY has a very limited storage area (only 500 SF) which results in us only picking up items when we have requests and referrals from Veterans & caseworkers.
