Donations of Used Items

Send this page to a friend Email envolope

Your used furniture, clothing, and other household items may enable you to make a tax-deductible contribution which will help support our local programs for the homeless and the poor.
Call our Thrift Store (770.534.2305) to discuss a pick up of your items. We also accept drop off donations at the store located at 603 Atlanta Avenue.
Usable clothing is one of the most important "raw materials" that help our salvage programs work. Not only is donated clothing sold in our Thrift Stores, but these items are utilized directly in The Salvation Army's local Family Service efforts, our Disaster Services operations and our general programs here in the Gainesville area.

Usable furniture forms a large component of our donations each year. Most furniture is accepted and is usually picked up by one of our Red Shield trucks. Furniture is most often sold in our Thrift Stores, with all the proceeds going to fund The Salvation Army's programs. Due to the excessive cost of dumping and major repairs, we can only accept furniture that is in salable condition. Thank you for your understanding.

Usable household goods of all kinds including knick knacks, electronics, kitchen appliances and other items, sporting goods, etc. are gladly accepted.
