Compensated Intakes

December is one of our no-intake months, so look for our January newsletter when we'll announce the day to call and make an appointment for a January compensated drop-off. We do take donations at any time that we're open. Please, no dumping or donations left at the building after hours or without our knowledge.

The Craft Box News & Happenings ~ October 2018

Our anniversary celebration will be held on Saturday, October 6th.  It’s always a fun time with goodie bags, free tote bags for the first 20 people through the door, drawings for gift baskets and CAKE!!  Also, we’ll have some Screamin’ Deal Grab Bags of all different kinds of craft supplies on the front table!

Our entire paper crafting area is 20% off in October!  Paper, albums, stamps, embellishments, stickers and much more!  Also, all apparel fabric is 20% off.  We have some great fabrics that would make wonderful Halloween costumes.

We will be taking appointments starting at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 4th for compensated drop offs.  Keep trying, thanks for your patience with our new system.  You MUST speak to a Craft Box staff member, please do not leave a message.  If you have had previous appointments in 2018, we will only take 2 from the same person in one year to keep it fair for everyone who’d like to bring items in.   We do take donations at any time that we’re open.  Please, no dumping or donations left at the building after hours or without our knowledge.  We have updated our list of items that we no longer pay for, it can be found here on our website:  Products we don’t buy  Some items new to the list include:  large wooden items, office supplies, craft foam, party supplies and decorations, basket weaving materials and doll making supplies. Whether you’re bringing a donation or a drop-off for compensation, please inspect your boxes for pests that may have taken up residence.  If we find evidence of bugs, moths, beetles or mice, we will immediately discard the items (if donated) or put outside and ask that they be picked up (if for compensation) and we will not accept future drop-offs from that person.  Thank you for your diligence and understanding.

In October, we will be collecting items for Denver Health’s Newborns in Need program.  Denver Health Foundation’s Newborns in Need program exists to give every baby we deliver the healthy start he or she deserves. The program collects donations of cash and baby items throughout the year. Volunteers then assemble the baby essentials in Warm Welcome bags to be distributed at the hospital to new families who are struggling financially. In 2017, we distributed more than 3,350 Warm Welcome bags, each with a retail value of approximately $120.  Each gift bag contains diapers, a sleep sack, bibs, socks, hats, sleepers, baby lotion and shampoo, a stuffed animal, and a book.  The program also provides portable cribs and car seats for parents who are unable to afford them.  The Newborns In Need program is sustained entirely through the generosity of private donors. Please bring baby wipes, wash, lotion, burp cloths, bibs, onsies, sleepers and outfits (size 3-6 months) to The Craft Box by October 31st.  All items must be new and unused.
