Beacon House Thrift Shop's Donation Acceptance Policy

First of all, we want to say thank you – we truly mean it! Your support means the world to us. We simply cannot achieve our mission without supporters like you. You are heroes to us, and you are helping our men build bright futures!

Please note that all items donated to the Beacon House Thrift Shop must be in good, clean and resellable condition. Items that do not meet these acceptance guidelines must be thrown away responsibly – this costs money and takes away from our primary mission!

These are general acceptance guidelines. We may not accept all donation drop-offs, especially if the items are not resellable, and donation pick-ups are at the driver’s discretion.

Please make sure to include pictures of your bulky items when scheduling a pick-up (a bulky item is any item that requires two people to lift it). Also, while we do accept sofas/couches, these and other upholstered items require an approval process (see Furniture section below). Once again, thank you!

What We DO and DO NOT Accept

All donated items must be in good, clean and sellable condition.

If you are unsure and/or need clarity on specific items, please email us and let us know what you have, along with pictures of the item(s), and we will let you know if we can accept the donation.
