From beloved items you don’t have room for any longer, to clothing apparel you’re done with but still have plenty of life left in them, your donations will bless life-transforming efforts rights here in our community and so much more.

When and where to donate:

The donation center is located right next to the store at 22049 Lorain Road in Fairview Park and open Monday – Saturday from 10 am – 7:30 pm, and Sundays from noon – 5:30 pm. (Note: Donation Center closes 30 minutes before regular store hours. Please use main store entrance for donations arriving during the  last 30 minutes of store operations. Mon-Sat 7:30-8:00pm and Sun 5:30-6:00pm.) The Donation Center is located at the far east end of our storefront (look for the Donation Center roof and window signs). An Associate can help you unload your vehicle.
