Donate Goods

The Salvation Army takes your old coat and turns it into warmth on a cold winter day. Your old dress shoes might be just what is needed to give a person the confidence they need for their first job interview since getting clean. The school uniform your child wore last year might mean the best school year yet for a family in need.

What you see as secondhand can become a second chance.

Gifts to our Family/Thrift Stores

Throughout the United States, The Salvation Army operates Family Stores where we sell donated items at a greatly reduced cost. These stores help in several ways. First, each sale is used to fund life-giving programs in the very communities where the stores are found. Secondly, our stores provide an opportunity for many families to purchase the items that they need at an affordable price.

We rely on your gifts and donations to continue to fund these programs. There are two ways to support us.

To Drop Off Items

For smaller items we ask that you drop these off at one of our familiy store locations or other designated drop off. You will want to contact your local Salvation Army for more information or check their facilities on this website.
