Thrift Donations


Donate, Receive a Tax Credit, Change Lives.

Do you have unwanted items in your house? The clothes you don’t wear anymore, those pots and pans taking up space in your cabinets, well, somebody wants to buy them, and that money will go directly to someone in need. We are a 100% non-profit store, which means the proceeds from our stores go directly to fund our critical social services programs in the community. Your thrift donations create opportunity for Michigan’s most vulnerable. To put it plainly, you make our work possible. 

See below to find a thrift store donation center or drop box location near you.

100% of all thrift store proceeds support our critical social service programs in your community.


We accept donations on-site at our donation centers during business hours. Donation centers are located at our Thrift Stores.

Donation Center Hours
Mon-Sat 9am – 9pm
Sun 10am – 7pm

Schedule a donation pickup

Regular Pickup

  • Due to high demand, pick-ups are scheduled approximately 3-5 weeks out based on availability. We continue to strive to schedule within 2 weeks and hope to be able to accommodate you sooner.
  • Our drivers will come directly to your home and haul your items away, free of charge.
  • We only accept items that we can sell at our thrift stores. Click here to download our donation guide.
  • All donated items must be put into bags or boxes and labeled and left on your porch or curbside.

Priority Pickup

  • Pickups within 48 hours.
  • Any and all items accepted! All eligible items are donated while remaining items are ethically disposed of.
  • Item retrieval from anywhere including within residence or a storage unit.
  • Disassembly of items that need it (except doors, cabinets, or lighting).
  • Fee reflects the operating costs and is much smaller than a usual moving company or junk hauler fee. (fee is not tax deductible)
