Household donations in/near Vevey?

Hi all! I am sadly heading back to the States in the next few months. Pesky (short) 2 year contracts! I have lots of clothes and household goods that are in good shape but not wanting to sell.

Is there a place to donate these clothes and/or small household goods in or near Vevey? I do not own a car, so the closer to Vevey the better since I would take public transit to the location.

Thank you all for your help!

Kristen

If you have small electrical appliances like toaster, microwave, etc, plus some decoration items (vases, pillows) I could possibly buy them from you.

And then if it's not too much I could take some of it to the Salvation Army which is in Lausanne. You just leave the bags in the loading dock during certain hours.

If not, you can look up Caritas and see where you can donate things. They have a used clothing stores as well as a housewares stores.

Well I haven't gotten the full list of things I am selling, I will do that in the correct forum. But I do have a TV, Microwave, Toaster, Blow Dryer, Curling Iron, Hair Straightener, Several lights, Unlocked DVD player, Deep Fryer, Electric Skillet, Heating Pad, Electric tea kettle (water heater), Nestle Tea Machine (with oodles of tea capsules), Hand Mixer and Cordless phones that will need to go. Wow. I didn't realize the list was that long. I will put together prices within the next few weeks.

I appreciate your info and offer to help me. I think there is a church that might take the clothes...we shall see!

Thanks!

Hi if you send me a mesage and let me know when and where i can arrange the transport for you. There is a church foundation in Vevey, can't remember the name but its' behind "Hostelerie de Geneve" in Place du Marche. Look for the bike shop half way up on the same side and there is a narrow passage that goes down to Rue du Lac. Half way down there is a foundation.
Send me a pm with your contact details and we workl something out.

PS if you want to sell the tea machine, i'm interested and will pay you or make a donation to whoever you want.
