Donate Goods


Proceeds generated by Family Store sales are used to give tangible assistance and offer hope to Wake County residents. Your donation could mean a mother and child are housed, a hungry man is fed, and a family stays warm. And all donations are Tax-Deductible!

Have Furniture or Large Appliances to donate?

Currently we are unable to schedule donation pickups.

Have other material items to donate?

You can drop off your donations at our Family Store location at 205 Tryon Road in Raleigh.

There can be no rips, stains, or animal hair on the upholstery, and no cracking or peeling of leather. Furniture must be in working order, mechanically sound, and not have any damage (includes larger scratches and swelling from water damage) or missing parts (handles and knobs may be OK). Any electric/ electronic or gasoline powered donations must be in working order and all gasoline must be drained from gas powered equipment.
