The Southern Exchange will begin accepting donations again on Saturday, August 1. There will be Pods in the parking lot by the entry door. Donations will be moved inside by staff after they have been left untouched for three days.
The Pods will be unlocked daily between dawn and dusk only. Please do not leave donations when the Pods are not open or are full.
We will re-open for shoppers on Thursday, August 6. In coming weeks, we will be placing detailed instructions here on our webpage for our current student families so that they can be familiar with the policies prior to our reopening. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we seek to reopen this ministry but do so using CDC guidelines required for retail businesses.
The Southern Exchange is a collection of clothing, shoes, household goods, electronics and furniture.
Donations to The Southern Exchange are being accepted at Fuller Hall, and after hours donations may be left in the hallway.
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.
We are delighted to reopen and look forward to serving students and families even better than before. Please read these guidelines carefully.

Volunteers and donors, please note the following:
The Southern Exchange accepts food items between 2-5, Tuesday-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 Southern Exchange at firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange an appointment for picking up food items.
