To drop off donations in Kankakee for the Resale Shoppe, please call 815-932-5800 to schedule an appointment. Donation appointments are scheduled through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., excluding holidays and must be scheduled in advance. Please do not just show up with donations without an appointment as we may not be able to accept them.

Do not leave your donations outside either location. This helps to avoid pilfering and clutter.

If going to the Kankakee facility, please call 815-932-5800 before you leave home (or even before loading your items) to verify there is space to accept your donation. There may be times when storage space is limited or full. 

If possible, please pack your donations in small boxes or 13-gallon trash bags. This ensures they are not too heavy to lift.

Donated items must be new or gently used — NOT stained, torn, or dirty.

Certain items are not acceptable for donation because of their usability or other specific reasons. Following is a list of items that are unacceptable for donation.
