Seton Family Store Donations

Seton Family Store accepts donations Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM. Click here for our list of items we are able to accept.  We reserve the right to refuse or recycle any donation based on condition or lack of available space within the Seton Family Store.

All sellable donations are greatly appreciated then. When we receive unsellable items (dirty, broken, damaged, torn, stained), our costs to dispose of or recycle items goes up, negatively impacting the available funding for the programs and services the Outreach Office provides to the community. If your items are not in sellable condition, please click here for a list of alternative donation sites, such as your local recycling center.

Automatic Payroll Giving

Check with your employer – Wells Fargo is just one example of a socially-conscious employer who supports employee sign-up for automatic charitable giving through a payroll deduction. Talk with your human resource personnel today to choose this convenient, automatic way to support to Seton Center and those we serve.
