Give goods. Find goods. Do good.
donateNYC is a program of DSNY whose aim is to reduce the amount of useable items sent to landfill by supporting reuse and donations in New York City. donateNYC consists of three online tools: the Give + Find Map for residents looking to donate or find goods, the Exchange for businesses and non-profits to donate durable goods, and the Food Portal for businesses and non-profits, which matches edible food to organizations that feed their community.
