Items that fit into your vehicle can be delivered to our donation door during store hours. We may be able to pick up your larger items in our truck for free.
Fine items will be sold online or at auction to earn the highest possible return. Read more about donating listed artwork, antique furniture and lighting, china, silver and other collectibles.
Donate, don’t dispose of slow-moving inventory! Join our other supporters to avoid the costs of warehousing and insuring excess inventory, as well as the expense of trash disposal and hauling.
We welcome all offers of new or very gently-used items, but we reserve the right to refuse unsuitable donations.
Please refer to the list of categories below to see if your donation falls within our guidelines and meets our current needs.
Items donated to the ReStore are sold to the general public. We ask that all merchandise be in excellent condition, be 100% operable and be thoroughly cleaned. Items that are broken, scratched or in need of repair cannot be accepted, as we do not have the resources available to refurbish these items.
Since we are unable to accept clothing, children’s items, tvs, electronics, mattresses, rugs or window treatments, one of the other donation centers listed at the bottom of this page may be a good alternative.
Most donations are tax deductible. We will give you a receipt for tax purposes. To guide you in determining the value of donated property, see IRS Publication 561.
