Unfortunately, we are unable to accept every item.  As a good steward of City Thrift and City Union Mission, on occasion we must decline donations because of State Health or Safety regulations, unsatisfactory condition, or merchandising reasons.  Disposing of these items results in an expense to our charity.

You can always contact your nearest location to find out if your donation is accepted.  Helpful Tips on what items to donate and best practices.

Support your community and donate!

It feels great to donate!  You are decluttering, helping the environment and supporting a great cause –

City Union Mission.  How do you know when it is time to donate or what to donate?  Here are some things to think about during the next season switch or the next time you clean!

  • Make sure whatever you are donating works!  If it doesn’t, it will cost the charity to dispose of the item instead of helping!
  • Wash your items before you donate them.  By removing stains, it makes the item more desirable and will sell quicker to help support the charity!
  • All items donated are tax-deductible!  Be sure to see a cashier for your donation receipt!
