The volume, frequency and value of donations from each Distribution Center varies, but annual donations received from this partnership can range from 4-100 pallets/yr and $5,000 – $100,000 in Fair Market Value per year.
Some Distribution Centers donate weekly, monthly or quarterly. Donation frequency is at the discretion of the DC.
