Good luck trying to get Safeway.com to deliver. I could only get the order to come to my home, and was on hold for way too long for someone to try to figure out how to change the delivery address for just the one time. I think the drop off times are M - F 10 - 5. That was in a previous article. I'd be happy to know if they will take donations this weekend
