Donating is easy! Here’s how it works:

Donations are accepted Monday-Saturday; 10am – 5 pm at 2309 Meridian St. Bellingham, WA 98225. Can’t drop off at the store? We offer free pickups for select, quality items. Get in touch. We’ll work with you to determine if our community could benefit from your materials

Your donations are assessed by our staff. We are looking for quality clean materials that can be repaired for a lifetime. For guidance, view our accept/don’t accept lists below. Not sure if we take it? Call us at (360) 647-5921. All donations are subject to approval on-site.

For your donation, you will receive an in-store credit for 25% of the resale value of your donated items, or a tax receipt. You just diverted waste from the landfill and donated to a local non-profit. Nice work!
