“Would You Give it to a Friend?”

We accept new and gently-used items. Gently-used items need to look and function like new items. We cannot keep items that are stained, damaged, excessively worn, or outdated. If you have something you are thinking about donating, ask yourself if you would feel comfortable giving to a friend. If the answer is yes, then we can probably take it! Thank you for helping us serve our community so well!
