Donation Guidelines

Click here for donation guidelines and items available for sale.

All saleable donations are greatly appreciated. However, when we receive un-saleable items (dirty, broken, damaged, torn, stained, non-functional), our costs to dispose of or recycle items increases. When costs rise, sale proceeds decline, which  negatively impacts the available funding for the programs and services the Outreach Office provides to the community. If your items are not in saleable condition, please click here for a list of alternative donation sites, such as your local recycling center.

So your donations are not stolen or destroyed by weather, please do not leave items outside when the Store is closed. We reserve the right to refuse any donation based on condition or availability of space within the Store and recommend calling ahead (301.447.6102 x 15) to check our ability to accept your donations.
