Waypoint does not accept clothing, furniture, or household items but we have partnered with several local agencies to help serve our clients.

Below is a list of clothing and furniture donation and distribution sites in the community. For other gently used household items and large items, please contact the agency prior to drop off.
Waypoint Charitable Account at Stuff Etc.
Individuals are able to drop off gently used clothing, furniture, household items etc. at Stuff Etc. located at 252 Blairs Ferry Road Northeast in Cedar Rapids and donate it under the account name of Waypoint. As the donated items sell, the money received through Stuff Etc. will be donated to Waypoint programs . Visit www.stuffetconline.com for a list of accepted and needed items.
Young Parents Network - We Care Shop
To better serve our clients and community supporters, Waypoint has partnered with the Young Parents Network and other local agencies, to support the We Care Shop—a community outreach project that collects gently used baby/toddler clothes, toys, and items which benefits participants of the supporting agencies. This incentive project supplies much needed infant/toddler items to clients who ‘earn’ points in a variety of ways, ie: participating in group night. These points are then exchanged for items that are typically difficult for participants to purchase on their own. All gently used donations are processed through the Young Parents Network main office located at: 420 6th Street SE CR, IA 52401, 8:00 a.m.—4:00 p.m. Visit www.youngparentsnetwork.org for a list of accepted items.
