How To Build A Donation Box In Animal Crossing New Horizons

Starting off, you have to make sure you have updated your game to the latest version, which is known as 2.0. This is a decent-sized update, so make sure to give yourself a little time before jumping into the game.

Once you have done so, start it up and head to Resident Services and the Nook Stop inside of it. You will want to select Redeem Nook Miles and then move over to the DIY Recipes tab.

From here, scroll down until you find the item known as the Donation Box and purchase the recipe for 800 Nook Miles. After that, go to your inventory and use the DIY recipe to learn how to make the Donation Box in Animal Crossing New Horizons

Now what you need to do is go and collect four pieces of Wood and 4 pieces of Softwood, which you may already have in your larger house storage.

Once you have that, go to any of your Workbenches and find the Donation Box. Select it and build it to have your own Donation Box that you can use.

It should be noted that unlike many of the other features in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.0 update, players who have an island below 3 stars will be able to the donation box straight away.

How To Use Donation Box

The Donation Box is great in Animal Crossing New Horizons, as it allows guests to your island to leave you Bells as a reward for letting them visit.

What you need to do is place the Donation Box wherever you want on your island, with keeping in mind where people would be looking for it most.

Then wait for anybody to visit your mind and deposit any Bells inside of the Donation Box. At any time after that, you can then access the Donation Box and withdraw the Bells inside.
