I came across “dropping centre” today. I checked the phrase on the web. There are a few dropping centres where you really do drop off something (kids, donations), but in most cases “dropping centre” serves as a replacement for “drop in centre.”
An eggcorn, perhaps? A dropping centre can be a place where you drop off your troubles.
: “Why the Controversy Over County Dropping Center for Disability Rights? Monroe County engages certain agencies, including the Center for Disability Rights, to provide specified services for people with disabilities.”
: “The older kids from both the inner city dropping center, and the country side Suluta orphanage, were taken about 45 km out of town into the country for a field trip.”
: “To have a dropping center for widows and widowers, men, women, orphans and vulnerable children.”
: “Setting up like a dropping centre @ local masjid, for anyone that needs help ”
For another kind of dropping centre, see http://www.metacafe.com/watch/750117/so … ng_injury/
