The recipients of our furniture and home goods are often moving into apartments or townhomes that are limited on space. Because of this, we primarily only accept small to medium sized furniture pieces. If you are unsure of whether or not your item will qualify, please call 443-519-2464 and press option 1 to be connected to our Program Director. A photo may be requested to make the best determination.
The IRS requires that all donations we receive are in good or better condition. Please consider whether or not you would pass along potential donation items to your family or friends if they were in need. We regard the families we serve in the same way. We reserve the right to refuse any items that do not meet our guidelines.
