Help keep the dish lending library stocked and free to use with a donation!
Are you interested in supporting the library financially? We are not yet registered as a non-profit (yet!), so we can’t provide you with a tax exempt receipt. However, you can still make a donation to help us become a 501(c)3 nonprofit, general operating costs, and to make sure the library is free for everyone who needs it!
Are you Marie Kondo-ing your kitchen cupboards? Do you have dishes and utensils that you don’t use and want to give them a second life? The Austin Dish Lending Library is seeking dish donations of used items in good condition. It doesn’t have to be a set! Lone items are welcome as this will add to the eclecticism of the collection and help us Keep Austin Weird.
Contact us if you’d like to donate something on the Wish List. Due to space restrictions, at the moment, we are only trying to complete the Wish List. All donations must be clean and delivered in a box or storage container. And don’t forget to tell your friends, neighbors, community groups, etc. all about it!
