In-Store Donations

We are currently suspending donation drop offs and free furniture pickups for the month of August. If you are able to hold your items until September, we will resume again then, and ask you to call in advance. If not, we completely understand and encourage donations to other local non profits. If you would like to choose our expedited Furniture Pickup option, which has you cover the cost of pickup and delivery, you can select the blue floating button to the right.

When we do begin accepting donations again, we accept them in the following areas for items that are in excellent condition:

  • Women's clothing
  • Men's clothing
  • Accessories
  • Household Goods
  • Home Decor
  • Furniture
