Schedule a Pickup for Thrift Store Donations
Call 1-800-SA-TRUCK (1-800-728-7825) to discuss a pick up of your items or to find out the nearest drop off location.
The Salvation Army has more than 2,300 donation drop-off locations in North America to which you can bring your household items and material goods. These conveniently located Salvation Army drop-off sites include clearly labeled clothing bins, Family Thrift Stores and all Salvation Army service locations. Please call 1-800-SATRUCK to find your nearest drop-off location.
Due to the high volume of donations received and the limited number of trucks available to respond to pick up requests, The Salvation Army cannot schedule same-day pick ups. While we will try our best to work with your schedule, pick up appointments are usually scheduled to take place within 7-14 days from the time of the initial phone call. However, schedules may vary based on location, time of year and the number of trucks available in your area.
Due to laws and other regulations, there may be some items that we cannot accept as donations. For instance, tires, paint, windows, doors, water heaters, bathroom fixtures, and water beds are often problematic. If you have any questions about any of the items you wish to donate, please call 1-800-SATRUCK. Our representatives will be able to advise you based on your location.*
Also visit SATruck.org for information on donating your goods, including used vehicles, to help support our programs.
* Please note that office furniture is not currently accepted by our pick-up service.
