Our goal is to be good stewards of every donation. We ask that donations be clean and in good, usable condition. Here is a list of items we are not able to accept at ENCORE. Donations are accepted during business hours and are sorted, cleaned and priced according to industry standards by our staff and volunteers.
Some donations make their way to one of our shelter or recovery facilities to be distributed free to our shelter guests. Other donations are distributed free of charge to those who are in need through our King’s Closet voucher program with area social service agencies and churches. Finally, others are placed for sale in our stores. In addition, some items such as cars, rare books, collectibles and antiques will be resold through various partnerships which help us to best steward your donation and maximize its impact within our ministry.
Donations of clothing and other items can be dropped off during business hours. To request a pickup, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VEHICLES+: If you are interested in donating larger or high-value non-cash assets like property, cars, homes, boats and fine jewelry, we manage those donations through our VEHICLES+ program. Donations of non-cash assets are tax-deductible and help us fund our programs and services. Learn more here.
