Support the ODC this holiday season by shopping through Amazon Smile

Other Ways to Give to the ODC

Sometimes you can help us out by just doing the things you’re already doing, from dining out at local restaurants, recycling your ink cartridges, or even shopping online at Amazon! Learn more below.

Dining out

When you dine out at Park City Diner and the Knight and Day Diner, you can help the ODC and it won’t cost you a penny.

Download and print out the Sharing Our Success card and keep it in your wallet. Every time you eat at one of these two diners, just show the card when you pay your bill, and 10% of your bill will be given to us. We’ll get a check from them every quarter!

Both diners are open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, so you have plenty of opportunities to help us out. Whether you’re going out for a full meal, or just coffee & dessert, make sure you show your card! And save it, because it’s reusable!

 

Donate Clothing and Household Items

The ODC has partnered with Community Aid to have a donation box placed on our property. Clean out your closets and the clutter, and bring your clothing and other small household items to our donation bin at 640 Martha Avenue. Community Aid will pay us for the items you donate to us. More information on what items we can and cannot accept. 

 

Amazon Smile

When you shop online at Amazon, you can make sure that a portion of your purchases comes to us at the ODC. By shopping through Amazon Smile, you can choose the ODC as your favorite charity. Then all you do is shop! Just purchase the items you would normally purchase and we benefit. Once you select the ODC as your favorite charity, just make sure you follow the Amazon Smile link before you start making your purchases.

 

Recycle your old cell phones and ink cartridges

Got an old cell phone you no longer need? Just drop them off at the ODC and we’ll get cash for recycling them. You can also drop them off at Elan Hair & Spa, located at 1401 Oregon Pike in Lancaster!

 

Donate your old vehicle

Do you have an old car you no longer need? By donating it to the ODC, you can help us get much needed cash. Even if it’s a total clunker and doesn’t even run!

Just call 855-500-RIDE (7433) or visit CARS, and we’ll take care of the rest. We take care of picking up the vehicle and will make sure you get the proper tax documents.

You can donate your old car, motorcycle, boat, or RV!
