Once your donation is shipped from the mission in Portland, it should arrive at the
orphanage within 6-9 weeks.

Is this a tax deduction?
All donations sent to Life2Orphans through the mission in Portland, the
Nazarene Ministry of Help, are considered tax deductible. This includes the
postage paid to mail the package to Portland, as well as the cost to ship it on
to Ukraine. Life2Orphans will send you a receipt for the items sent and the cost
to ship the package from Portland to Ukraine. It is your responsibility to retain
your shipping records from your home to Portland for your tax records.

I have an item that I want to donate, who do I ask to verify it is allowed?
Feel free to email Jan if you have any questions about your donation.

Can we send "almost-new" items?
Only new or very gently used items should be sent. Please do not send items
with rips, holes, missing buttons, broken zippers, stains or spots. Providing
quality items to the orphanages we support will ensure a longer usage cycle
for each item.
