Where can I donate household goods?
I've listed a few options below, but if anyone knows of additional programs that accept household goods, please provide them down in the comments section.
If you have household furniture, you can call 1-800-728-7825 and a Salvation Army truck will come pick up your item to be taken back to a Toledo distribution center. If you have smaller household goods, you can put them put them in the donation bin outside the Salvation Army office at 3333 Columbus Ave., Sandusky. If you want a receipt for tax purposes, or if you have delicate donates (like dishes or glass cups) you don't want to dump in the bin, you can drop off items at the office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Right now the Salvation Army is accepting any donations. Donates sold at thrift stores help fund adult rehabilitation centers.
Care and Share
Care and Share accepts household goods at its donation center at 241 Jackson St. Sandusky, Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays 9-11 a.m., and 1-3 p.m. and Fridays 9-11 a.m. Right now the charity has special need for bedding, towels and winter clothes. No furniture or appliances. Items are given to people in need based on federal poverty guidelines.
Goodwill accepts donations of clothing and household goods at drop off centers listed HERE. Revenue generated through the sale of items goes toward job training and employment programs for people who are disabled or disadvantaged.
