Donate Clothing and Household Goods
We accept your new and gently worn clothing, as well as household goods such as dishes, small appliances, linens, and children’s books. You may drop off your donations at our shop.
Due to our small space, we do not accept furniture without pre-approval. Please email a photo of the furniture to firstname.lastname@example.org to get approval.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT DONATIONS ON TUESDAYS
WE DO NOT DO PICK-UPS FOR DONATIONS
1. Keep it Organized
Putting like-items together makes the sorting process faster and easier. Please have all clothing in bags or boxes, noton hangers.
2. Wrap Breakables
Wrapping household items prevents the goods from being broken.
3. Where To Go
When you pull into our parking lot head to the garage to the left of the trash bin. Bring donations into the garage and put on the table, on the ground, or in the white bins.
