Donate Material

We’re happy to help turn your old couch into a new career!  We accept everything but the kitchen sink….  nah, we actually take that, too!  

Second Chance can give new life to old doors and windows, hardware and tools, ironwork and mantles, and even your gently used furniture.  If you have building materials, kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures, tubs, sinks, accessories, household goods, garden elements, collections, lighting or unique architectural items in good to excellent condition, please consider donating them to Second Chance.  Working vehicles, items with historical value, and certain “oddities” are welcome, too.  We enjoy building ongoing donor relationships with various businesses and organizations, and we’re proud to have so many repeat donors who value our efficiency and efforts.  Not only do they benefit from a tax deduction, but they contribute to the growth of an organization that is changing lives through job training, salvaging our regional architectural history, saving consumers money, and protecting the planet through waste stream diversion.

It’s a five-for-one deal that’s hard to beat!

While drop-off donations are welcome at our warehouse from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. seven days a week, pick-ups typically occur between 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. on weekdays.  To request a pick-up for items you wish to donate, simply fill out the form below or send an email.  Please describe the condition of your items and attach pictures, since it’s important that we accept items we can sell to support our mission. (If we can’t accept something–like mattresses, used paint or clothes–rather than dump it, consider repurposing it into something fun, funky or functional! We’ve collected 1000’s of upcycling and reuse ideas on our Pinterest boards for your inspiration.)

If you experience any issues with this form, please just send the information via email.

“Everything went very smoothly with my donation! The guys are so polite and pleasant and such amazing workers. I was impressed with their efficiency and strength. You have a fabulous team and I greatly appreciate them.” -Dea Dea
