To ensure your safety, anytime someone comes to your door wanting you to purchase something or requesting a donation, please ask for their business ID and their Town of Penfield issued permit. (view active list)

Door-to-door solicitation is defined as any attempt to make personal contact with a resident at his or her residence, without prior specific invitation by or appointment with the resident, for the primary purpose of:

  1. Seeking or asking for a gift or donation for a public entity or tax-exempt nonprofit organization exempt from federal income tax under 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(3);
  2. Soliciting the sale of goods, wares or merchandise for present or future delivery, or the sale of services to be performed immediately or in the future, with the entire proceeds of such sale to be paid directly to, or used exclusively for the benefit of, a public entity or tax exempt nonprofit organization exempt from federal income tax under 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(3);
