Frequently Asked Questions

Do you pick up donations?

Unfortunately, we do not have the staff to pick up items.

Why don't you take used mattresses?

It is illegal to sell used mattresses that have not been cleaned and sanitized.  While we have the capacity to sanitize small throw pillows, we don't have the expertise or resources to clean and santize mattresses.

Why are you so particular about what items you take?

Every item donated is accepted with the goal of selling it in our thrift store or to our partner vendors to fund our food pantry.  Items that are unsellable end up in the trash and too frequent trash pickups takes away money for the food pantry.  If you wouldn't buy it, help us help others by throwing it away in your home trash pickup.

Do you take VHS and cassette tapes?

This medium is not common anymore and it is not as in demand as CDs and DVDs are to our thrift store customers.
