Frequently Asked

The United Breast Cancer Foundation accepts donations of clothing and household items on Long Island. If you life outside of Long Island, and need a donation pickup, please call us as we will make every effort to accommodate. To make a donation, please schedule a pickup online, or call us at 1-888-233-0856.

Monday – Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Saturday 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time.

We ask that donors please collect gently-used items, pack them in bags or boxes labeled “UBCF”, and place them outside your front door. If you are home, and prefer, you can leave them inside your home and our driver will knock on your door.

We are now picking up furniture and mattresses in some zip codes on Long Island and in New Jersey.  You can call us for more details at 1-888-233-0856.

Yes. Reminder calls are made the night before your pickup around 7 pm. You will also receive an email confirmation as soon as you schedule your pickup.

If you are at the pickup location at the time of pickup, our driver will be sure to hand you a tax-receipt. If you are not available at the time of pickup, our driver will leave a tax-receipt on your door knob.

For instructions on filling out your tax receipt please click here. Please contact your account or tax professional for tax information.

Our drivers collect donations rain or shine; we only ask that you protect your donations by placing them in a covered area.  In the event of a weather emergency we will notify you to reschedule.

When you donate your gently-used items, we gather and sell them to our thrift store partners. The proceeds from this partnership help us fund our mission, and the seven unique programs we have that benefit thousands of women, men and children every year.

Your support helps provide the funding we need to carry out our programs.
