Household goods in useable condition are accepted at the office
during office hours. Arrangements for pick up can be made by
calling the office.
NO household goods or unusable items are to be left during the
weekends. It costs us precious financial resources to carry
discards to the dump.

outgrowing their clothing. All sizes are needed.

throughout the community. Toys may also be left off at the CAC

both. Families are screened before they are adopted out.
Raley's Food For Families:
One hundred percent of the money donated in Benicia to the Food
for Families Program is used by the Benicia CAC to purchase food
which we otherwise wouldn't have to give to hungry people.
