DONATION GUIDELINES

We love donations and wish we could take everything!  However, if something doesn’t sell, it costs us money to dispose of it and takes away from our mission.  Please keep the following in mind.

  • Your donations may be tax-deductible. Check with a tax expert.
  • If you are not sure about your donation and its acceptable quality, please call us at 610-921-1315.
  • We cannot accept donations when the store is closed (Mondays and Tuesdays).  Dropping off items when the store is closed is considered illegal dumping. Cameras are in use.
  • Donations can be dropped off:
    Wed – Sat:  10:00 am-4:00 pm
    Sun 1:00-4:00 pm

*All furniture donated to the ReStore is vacuumed and sterilized using steri-fab sterilization spray that is certified by the Commonwealth.

The following guide is for reference only. Exceptions are made at the discretion of ReStore staff. Questions? Call the ReStore at 610-921-1315.
