If you have items that aren’t Smith County related, but would still like to see them donated to an appropriate institution, we would be happy to direct  you to the best of our abilities! Please do note: all items discussed at the meetings must be received PRIOR to the meeting! With a limited amount of time for our members to discuss each object, document, or photo(s) we try and prep as much as possible before hand!   If you have items you would like to donate, please feel free to call or stop by our offices!
