Donate Items

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 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 the efficiency and excellence we’ve gained through two decades of experience. Not only do donors 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 resource conservation and waste stream diversion.

It’s a five-for-one deal that’s easy to feel good about!

Drop-off donations are welcome at “Bay 8” of our warehouse from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. every day we are open (currently Thursday - Sunday). Pick-ups typically occur between 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. on weekdays.

The most efficient way to request a pick-up for items you wish to donate is to fill out the form below. You can always call 410-385-1700 or send an email if you prefer.

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.






 

Required: Please upload photos of your items for donation. Tips: You may fill out the form on your mobile phone and take and upload pictures directly from your device. If uploading from a desktop, you can upload multiple photos at once by holding down the Ctrl or Cmd key when selecting the photos in your file browser.

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

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.
