Our Easy Donation Drop-off Process

Donation Tips

  • Review our list of accepted items before donating.
  • Ask for a receipt when dropping off your items.
    Your donation is tax-deductible!
  • Wash items before donating.
    Removing stains and smells is a kindness to our volunteers. It also makes your items more likely to sell and generate funds that support our community.
  • Check whether your items are broken, torn or stained.
    Remember: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, but sometimes trash is just trash. It costs us time, labor and other expenses to dispose of unusable items. Examples include stained cloth baby diapers and bedsheets!
  • Please sort your items.
    For example, all clothing should be placed into one bag, and household goods into another.
