Thank you for your interest in making an in-kind donation to APM. Below are guidelines for donations (printable version here) detailling what we particularly need and that which we unfortunately cannot take.
|APM Donation instructions |
All the donations we receive are sorted by our teams of volunteers and more than 70% of the items are distributed to the projects we support (around 30 projects all over China). What cannot be given is sold at our regular charity bazaars and the proceeds are used to provide financial aid to the projects we support.
If in doubt, please contact us for further details of what we can and cannot accept. We unfortunately do not pick up donations, unless special arrangements have been made in advance. Donations of books and magazines in French, English, or Chinese for adults OR children can be dropped off at our depot or at one of our Book Corners: Mandarin Inn in Central Shanghai or Acadomia in Qingpu. Addresses and details of our drop-off points
Donations can be dropped off at our depot (located in Qingpu) every week, from Monday to Wednesday; 10am to 1pm.
We are unfortunately closed in the afternoons: please do not leave donations in front of our door; they may be picked up by the trash recyclers.
