NEW! Pickups from Resupply

To broaden the choices for the donors, Household Goods is partnering with Resupply, an organization owned by veterans that offers pickups outside of our volunteer pickup area in as little as two days and at a cost. Hit this Donation Pickup link on the page below to begin.

We needed everything, particularly towels, sheets, kitchenware, pots, pans, and dishes. Consider choosing something on the Amazon Wish List and delivering it to us.

We have a drop-box container for the local non-profit More than Words for DVDs, books, CDs, audiobooks, and video games at the bottom of our donation collection zone. There is also an Epilepsy Foundation drop-off container for clothing donations inside the donation collection location. This is an option for people in the community, and we ask you to help us keep doing this by not putting your items in the bins when they are overflowing.

If we cannot accept your item or you are not in your region, Please check our list of other organizations.
