HOW TO DONATE

 

To donate goods, visit the thrift store or schedule a donation pickup.

Because the St. Vincent de Paul Society sells items to support our programs, we cannot accept donated items that we cannot sell. Please do not donate items that are ripped, stained, broken, missing parts, or otherwise unusable or in need of repair. All electronics and appliances should be less than 10 years old and in working order. A good rule of thumb is “Would I give this to a neighbor?” To determine the value of your donation, please refer to the IRS Donor’s Guide to Thrift Shop Donations.
