This past year, more than 10 million caring citizens donated gently used items
such to The Salvation Army. Their tax-deductible contributions are then sold through
our popular listing of stores conveniently located near you. You can drop off items
at Salvation Army Family Thrift Stores up until an hour before close of business each day.
Hours are listed below the store locations. See our list of items below to verify that we
can accept your donations.

When we sell affordable donated items to people in the community this reduces waste. Most items not suitable for sale in the store are recycled or sold to those who deal in wholesale items, such as rag dealers, leather dealers and electronics scrap recovery businesses.Those in dire need in Columbus are sent to the thrift store with vouchers for free merchandise.
You may receive a receipt for your donation, but you must determine the value of the items yourself. Click here for a Valuation Guide for your donation.
