Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are your hours of business?
A: Monday thru Saturday 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.
Q: When can I donate?
A: There is a 24 hour weekday donation box. On Friday afternoons at 3:00 pm, we put the chains up and are unable to accept donations on the weekend.
Q: Why are the chains up when I come to donate?
A: You’re probably coming during the weekend when we are closed. We have to put the chains up for security reasons.
Q: Why do you sometimes not take particular items I am trying to donate?
A: We now accept everything that people bring us - except mattresses and large appliances and furniture. Yes, we would love to take everything, but we are very small and our space is quite limited. Sometimes we might have enough of a particular item and no way to store more. Please extend grace to us when considering donating the large bulky items… always call first to be sure. Our phone number is (985) 626-4408. It is no easy matter for us to manage large items that are dropped off when we are closed. We effectively monitor these large item donations during our regular store hours to prevent space-limiting donations. Thank you kindly for your understanding!
