5 Donation Centers in Sarasota-Manatee

Sarasota-Manatee Donation Centers

July 15 - National Give Something Away Day

Our real estate agents are looking forward to making a difference on National Give Something Away Day. Happening on July 15, this is a wonderful opportunity to give to charity and brighten someone's day. It also means you'll have less to lug around if you're about to move!

Lately, many people have gotten excited about the potential of the clutter-free life. One of the biggest challenges in de-cluttering is having one place where every item should always go. Sometimes, getting rid of an item simply makes more sense than keeping it.

Luckily, there are many organizations all over Sarasota-Manatee that will be more than happy to accept your donation. In most cases, all you need to do is visit and drop off your item. While each collection site has its own rules, they all help people in need.

Let's look at five of the top donation centers in the area:

  1. HOPE Chest Thrift Store - 1215 8th Ave W, Bradenton, FL 34205
    A short distance from Bradenton homes for sale is HOPE Chest Thrift Store. Hope Chest Thrift Store accepts donations of clothing, household items, furniture, and electronics during business hours. The store is open to the public and all proceeds benefit the clients of HOPE Family Services. Operating Hours: Monday-Saturday 9am-4pm. Please call for more information (941)745-2034.
  2. Goodwill Manasota Donation Center – 3614 East Bay Drive, Holmes Beach, FL 34217
    Holmes Beach homes for sale benefit from proximity to many nonprofits. One of these is Goodwill, which operates several drop-off points in and around Sarasota and Manatee. While Goodwill is mainly funded by its network of retail thrift stores, it also accepts donations directly from the public. 
  3. Salvation Army Family Store & Donation Center – 2280 17th Street, Sarasota, FL 34234
    The Salvation Army has a number of easy ways to donate items from Sarasota homes for sale. In addition to visiting the donation center on 17th Street, you also have the option of scheduling a free pickup at your home or place of business. The Salvation Army also accepts donations of private vehicles.
  4. Turning Points – 701 17th Avenue West, Bradenton, FL 34205
    Turning Points is a Florida nonprofit that provides assistance to people who are struggling with homelessness or domestic violence. Single mothers, the elderly, the disabled, and youth leaving the foster care system are just some of the many beneficiaries. Donations are gratefully accepted from throughout the region including Ellenton homes for sale. Bring canned foods, clothing, and toys.
  5. Englewood Helping Hand – 700 East Dearborn Street, Englewood, FL 34223
    The efforts of Englewood Helping Hand go to help the one in five Sarasota and Charlotte County youths who are food insecure. If you're looking at Englewood homes for sale, you're more than welcome to stop by and drop off food donations. The organization is in the middle of a major funds drive with the goal of moving to a bigger location, too!

Our real estate agents are always ready to give YOU a "helping hand" with all of your real estate needs. We bring you courteous customer service and insightful advice you can really rely on.

It's about time you discovered your Florida dream home. Contact us today to find out more.

Manatee and Sarasota Counties: Where to Adopt a Four-Legged Friend

Manatee & Sarasota  Pet Adoption

Join our REALTORS® at Wagner Realty as we observe National Lost Dog Awareness Day on April 23rd. This annual event celebrates the happy reunions of lost pets and their owners while raising awareness for the hundreds of other missing or abandoned dogs that need a loving home. There are plenty of cute canines throughout the Sarasota and Manatee Counties that are available for immediate adoption. As you browse homes for sale along Florida's Gulf Coast, we invite you to stop by one of these compassionate animal shelters and find a four-legged friend to add to your family.

  1. Humane Society of Manatee County, 2515 14th St. W, Bradenton, FL 34205
    The mission of the Humane Society of Manatee County is to teach compassion and respect for animals through care, education, and working together.  When you adopt a pet from the Humane Society of Manatee County, not only do you save the life of an animal, but you bring our area one step closer to becoming a no-kill community.  Visit them Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 5:00 pm or Saturday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm and add a dog (or cat) to your family in your new Bradenton home.

  2. Nate's Honor Animal Rescue — 4951 Lorraine Rd., Bradenton, FL 34211
    Located near beautiful new Lakewood Ranch homes for sale, Nate's Honor Animal Rescue is changing the way the community views sheltered pets by educating area families about animal shelters. Help their no-kill shelter find forever homes for their rescued dogs by visiting one of their two adoption centers in Bradenton.

  3. Humane Society of Sarasota County, 2331 15th S., Sarasota, FL 34237
    Your family's new four-legged friend is patiently waiting for you at the Humane Society of Sarasota County. The organization is the area's premier no-kill shelter and works toward the common goal of living in a community where all animals are cared for and loved.  They provide compassionate care to shelter pets, find them permanent homes and promote responsible pet ownership throughout Sarasota County.  One of our area's Siesta Key homes for sale would be the perfect place for the newest member of your family.

  4. Satchel's Last Resort — 8101 Coash Rd., Sarasota, FL 34241
    The compassionate people at Satchel's Last Resort believe that no dog is unadoptable. They rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome canines of all shapes and sizes. Even if these animals have been turned away from other shelters, Satchel's takes them in and helps reintegrate them into loving homes. Some of their dogs are now living lives of love as they act as service dogs for those in need throughout the community. Give a great dog a second chance by adopting through Satchel's Last Resort, not far from Sarasota homes for sale.

  5. Moonracer Animal Rescue — PO Box 2103, Holmes Beach, FL 34218
    If you're dreaming of living in one of the beautiful Holmes Beach homes for sale, you're not alone. The wonderful dogs at Moonracer Animal Rescue also dream of finding a forever home close to the sun and sand. Moonracer is fighting to make Manatee County a no-kill shelter community. You can support them and help them achieve this goal by adopting one of their fantastic dogs.

  6. Bishop Animal Shelter SPCA — 5718 21st Ave. W., Bradenton, FL 34209
    Not far from Longboat Key homes for sale is the Bishop Animal Shelter SPCA. This privately funded no-kill shelter in Manatee County offers affordable dog adoptions that include spay/neutering, microchipping, collars and leashes, and a free appointment with their veterinarian. They even provide a Slumber Party program that lets you take a dog home for the night to see if they're a good fit for your home.

  7. Venice Doberman Rescue —611 Mobile Rd., Sarasota, FL 34293
    For decades, the folks at Venice Doberman Rescue have placed hundreds of Dobermans with loving families. They believe that every Doberman, young or old, deserves a caring home where they can live happily with compassionate owners. If you would like to find an adorable Doberman after purchasing Venice homes for sale, give Venice Doberman Rescue a call to meet their current furry friends.

Participating in National Lost Dog Awareness Day is a great way to show your support for the thousands of abandoned dogs that go to sleep every night without a permanent, loving home.
