Donate

Donation Hours: Monday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm

You must wear a mask that covers both your mouth and nose when bringing in donations. Our donation door is a busy place, and we are doing our part to keep donors and our volunteers as safe as possible.

We depend on your donations to keep our shelves stocked with quality items for resale. We are currently using a no-contact donating system as we practice social distancing, and we have worked to make donating a smooth and simple experience. During our donation hours we have bins outside the donation entrance with labels such as “clothing”, “housewares”, “toys”, “electronics” etc. We ask that you have your donations sorted and organized prior to arrival so that you can simply drive up, and drop your items off in the designated bins. (Please do not leave items outside after business hours or on the weekend.) If you would like a tax receipt, our volunteers will be happy to provide one.

We accept quality, gently-used items in the following categories:

  • Books and magazines (except encyclopedias)
  • Baby items (except car seats and cribs)
  • Clothing (children’s, juniors, and adults)
  • Electronic items (except televisions, computers, fax machines, keyboards, printers, and scanners)

  • Housewares and wall art
  • Sporting goods (except exercise equipment such as treadmills, weight sets, etc)
  • Toys and games (except stuffed animals)

What We Do Not Accept

To maintain quality and safety and to make efficient use of our resources, we do not accept the following items:

  • Dirty, broken or damaged goods
  • Televisions, large or small
  • Computers, fax machines, keyboards, printers, and scanners (if you have used computers, computer accessories, or computer components to donate, you can bring them to CompRenew)

Tax Deductions

Did you know that the I.R.S. value of your donated items is usually larger than their garage sale value? Every item you donate to New 2 You is tax-deductible. Find help with donation tax deduction values here.
