When friends donate unusable or hazardous goods to the Society of St.
Vincent de Paul, the cost to properly dispose of these items reduces
funding that could otherwise support our efforts in caring for
individuals and families in need. By following a few easy guidelines you
can make your donation go further.

Society of St. Vincent de Paul Donation Guidelines Checklist

In general, all donated items should be gently used, clean, and in working condition.
Clothing should be washed or dry-cleaned.
Furniture should be in good shape. It must be structurally sound and have no stains, rips, or tears.
Some items may be unsafe to reuse (for example, a toy that has been recalled, a damaged bike helmet, or wood painted with lead based paint).
Sports, medical and exercise equipment; and children’s items should all be examined carefully and tested before donating. Donors are encouraged to review the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)  recalls and announcements before donating.  Items that have been recalled cannot be donated to or sold by St. Vincent de Paul.
If your donation is electronics, small appliances and battery-operated items, please make sure they work. We don’t always have volunteers available to repair these items. If you donate a broken item, it is expensive for SVdP to properly dispose of it.
 
Unfortunately, there are certain items that we cannot accept. Please read through this list before donating goods.
