Donate Items to House of Hope
House of Hope welcomes your donations of gently used clothing and household items. The following information is designed to make the donation process easy!
You will be asked your name, address, phone number and a general description of your items. This information will be used to schedule your pickup.
Non-perishable food donation can be dropped off during business hours at any of our locations EXCEPT Stuart Thrift located at 2525 SE Federal Hwy in Stuart. Yes, we can also accept fruits and vegetables grown in your garden or on your farm if they are in edible condition. We cannot accept prepared meals, sandwiches, meats or anything that required consistent refrigeration or to be kept frozen. *Our pantries are currently in most need of tomato products and pasta sauces, breakfast cereals, and canned fruit*.
Clothing & Household Items
Donors may also drop off items at any House of Hope location — Stuart Thrift on US-1, Hobe Sound, Indiantown or Jensen Beach. Check the locations page for hours and addresses. PLEASE NOTE: At this time our Bonita Street location is unable to accept clothing & household items, they need to be taken to the Stuart Thrift location at 2525 SE Federal Hwy.
Our thrift stores can also make use of your clean paper, plastic, or reusable shopping bags to pack customer merchandise in. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
Keep it Clean
PLEASE! We ask that all donated items be in good condition without holes, tears and stains. Items also should be in good working order, with all parts included. House of Hope does not have the resources to clean and repair donated items. Despite your best intentions, some items are unusable and House of Hope incurs a cost to dispose of them.
At this time our thrift stores are unable to accept:
- Big, bulky televisions and computer monitors that are not flat-panel
- Cassette tapes or records
- Fax machines, phones, etc.
- Toilet seats or portable toilets
How your Donations Help
Donated items are either given directly to people in need, passed along to an appropriate agency — such as those serving children, veterans and homeless people — or they are sold in our thrift stores to support our assistance programs to Martin County residents.
Thrift store sales account for about one-third of the income to House of Hope, so your donated items are an important part of giving HOPE a hand in Martin County.
