Two friends, Kiyoshi Terada and Mikal Anderson, are part of a team that put together Virtual Warehouse on DonorsResource.org. This site provides a place for donors to donate items to non-profits and for non-profits to indicate the types of items they need. Created by Sisters of the Community (SOC), a 501(c) (3) organization, DonorsResource.org helps to streamline the delivery of needed goods to non-profits.
The Oregonian had a blurb about the launch in its Business section today. If you’ve got items you want to donate, computer equipment, furniture, whatever, and you want it to go to a specific type of organization or a specific non-profit, this is the place to do it. Or, if you have a non-profit that needs stuff, sign up online to connect to donors.
DonorsResource.org is run as an Oregon non-profit out of Lake Oswego.
