Thank you for your interest in donating items to Catholic Social Services of Southern Nebraska!

To better serve and uphold the dignity of our clients, we have established guidelines for our donation program and we ask that all potential donors of furniture or larger items fill out this screening form. Clothing & household items may be brought to our Hastings St. Joseph Gift & Thrift store (click here for more information). We appreciate your understanding and support!

Pickup guidelines and details:

  • Pickups outside of Hastings will be done at our convenience depending on how much there is and if we have other requests in your area.

Item Photos

Multiple items in one photo are fine. Multiple files can be included on the Photo 1 field, up to 30 files max. To do this, Ctrl-click multiple files and drag them ALL onto the field at one time. Dragging and dropping some and then trying to add more will replace what's there instead of add to it. If you prefer to add your photos one by one you may do so (up to 5) using the Photo 1 through Photo 5 fields below.

PLEASE NOTE: Each of your submitted files MUST have a unique name ("File1", "File2", etc.) or our transfer system will only take the last one uploaded.
