The Attic

The Attic Luncheon
The Attic is a ministry joyfully provided through the generous support of volunteers for the benefit of Southern Seminary and Boyce College students and their families.

The Attic is now accepting food items between 2-5, Monday-Friday. Donors should bring the items during these hours so that a volunteer may store them to keep for seminary families in need. Canned food is accepted and may be left in the donation bins. Families in need who would benefit from these donations must contact The Attic at and arrange an appointment for picking up food items.

  • We are in need of good quality clothing, especially for older girls and boys.
  • We are particularly in need of gently used furniture and toys.
  • We regret that we are no longer accepting mattresses or mattress pads of any kind.

Quick facts about The Attic:

  • It is a collection of clothing, shoes, household goods, electronics and furniture
  • We welcome students to take up to four items per family member per day of clothing as well as up to four small household items
  • Donated furniture may be reserved for a maximum of seven days while the student arranges transportation
  • It is conveniently located on campus in Fuller Hall, Rooms 10-11.  Look for the sign posted near the entrance door on the northeast corner of the building.
  • The hours are 2-5 PM, Monday-Friday.
