The Big Brothers Big Sisters Donation Center is a 501 c 3 not-for-profit corporation working in conjunction with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City. The Donation Center solicits used, re-saleable clothing and small household items from the community, which are then sold to our retail partner, Savers.

Our partnership with Savers Thrift Stores has been a key factor in allowing us to increase the number of children and families we serve.  For more than 17 years, we have benefited from this reliable revenue source that accounts for 30% of our operating budget. 

The BBBS Donation Center serves most of the greater Kansas City area, including Johnson, Jackson, Platte, Wyandotte, and Clay counties.

If you would like to place or sponsor a bin, please contact Jon at 816.777.2886.
