W.P.B. Warehouse Open for Business!
Good news, Palm Beach County! Free and discounted products for charities are now closer than ever. On August 1st, we opened a brand new 5,000 sq. ft. warehouse in the Extraordinary Charities Non-Profit Center at 2635 Old Okeechobee Road in West Palm Beach. The doors are open from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday and we're ready to serve the more than 12,500 nonprofit organizations registered in PBC!

Thank you to Beverlee Miller Raymond and the Lost Tree Foundation for making our expansion possible!

Record Amount of Products Are Being Delivered
to MCS Warehouses
Our warehouses are filled to the brim with a record amount of products to serve our charity members! Pallets and Gaylord containers filled with new and like-new goods are pouring in from Walmart and Amazon every week, and shipments of furniture are arriving at our doors from Disney World in Orlando.

Don't miss out! Stay in-the-know on the latest deliveries and merchandise updates with the MCS app for Android and iPhone.

Needed: Storage Space for Seasonal Items
Seasonal items present a unique challenge for our business model: most holiday or seasonal items that we receive from our partners arrive after their retail season, and thus after when our nonprofit members could use them most. To make the most of Back-to-School, Halloween, and other seasonal shipments, we would love to be able to store products until nonprofits are ready to make the best use of them.

We are looking for storage spaces from 1,000 to 10,000 square feet, for six months to a year at a time, ideally free or deeply discounted. Empty retail space or industrial space with a loading dock are best for our operation - but we're open to suggestions!
If you know of a storage opportunity, please contact Buddy Walck at or 954-590-8256.
Giving Tuesday is the Biggest
Shopping Day of the Year!
LoKation Cares and CBRE are sponsoring our biggest shopping day of the year: our annual Giving Tuesday event for nonprofits! This year's event will be held at our Pompano warehouse on Tuesday, Dec. 3rd from 8am - 4pm.

MCS members will save 50% off of our already low prices. Last year's Giving Tuesday event was our biggest ever: 73 nonprofits shopped, saving more than $60,000 on products they need to serve their missions. This year we have even more inventory in stock. We're ready to make this a record-breaking sale day!
For every $20 donation, MCS keeps 32 lbs of retail products out of landfills and puts them in the hands of nonprofits who need them.
Members in Action:
Kiwanis of Oakland Park Crochets for Kids
MCS member organizations help others in so many different ways. We love seeing our products in action making a difference in our community!

One of our members is the Kiwanis Club of Oakland Park. Their Crochet Club has recently used materials from MCS to help child-serving organizations, making 102 hats for the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center; 15 blankets and pillowcases for Broward Partnership for the Homeless; and 41 blankets, 60 pillowcases, nine bedding sets, 14 octopuses, and 10 IV covers for the Salah Center at Broward General.
Thank you to Kiwanians and all our members for helping others
and making our community a better place!
Volunteer Spotlight: Community Groups
Each year, dozens of community groups volunteer in our warehouses and help us with a variety of tasks, from processing shipments and stocking shelves, to testing and even fixing small electronics and mechanical items.

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Our thanks go out all the groups that volunteer at MCS, including these recent supporters:
  • Church by the Glades
  • New Church
  • Northwest High School
  • Hands on Broward
  • ETA NU Education

  • Home INC
  • Covenant House
  • and countless high school volunteers.
Recently, high school students from Boca Raton's 4-H Science and Technology Club "Dirty Mechanics" spent a weekend with us troubleshooting a shipment of bikes and trikes. As soon as they finished, a veteran's group loaded the bikes up for their families!
