Nearly New Donations

New Donation Polices:


  • Donated items must be in a sealed box or hung on hangers in an airtight bag.
  • All incoming donations will be kept sealed and placed in a separate storage area for a period of time before the donations are processed.
  • Donation pick ups are being scheduled, but items must be placed outside of the home for pick up.

In an effort to streamline the efficiency of our intake and processing room, we ask that you include an itemized list with your donations. 

Year-round, the Nearly New Shop accepts donations of gently-used clothing, furniture, household items, toys, jewelry, accessories, shoes, and other goods. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.

The Nearly New Shop will provide an itemized donation receipt to be used for tax purposes. You may claim tax deductions for donated clothing and household items in good, used condition or better. The amount of your charitable contribution is generally the Fair Market Value of the property at the time of the contribution.

Please have CLEAN clothing on hangers or folded in boxes. We cannot stack bags, and wrinkled clothes are not as valuable as un-wrinkled clothes. Also, please do not send broken household items or electronics that do not work. We cannot sell them and they have zero tax value.

Thank you for your help!
