What items can I donate at ditto?

We gladly accept clean, quality, gently used or new items such as clothing for men, women and children, jewelry, shoes, furniture, lamps, knick knacks, toys, games, electronics, appliances, sporting goods, books, housewares, holiday decorations and linens.
Please note that we are unable to accept clothing that is missing buttons, ripped or stained, has broken zippers, smells smoky, musty or of mothballs. We are unable to accept items that are missing pieces, damaged or in need of repair. ditto reserves the right to refuse items that are not in good condition.

Please remember that if you have a garage sale and items did not sell, they will NOT sell at ditto. Please do not bring these unsold items to ditto.

Thank you for understanding our policy. Removal and disposal of these items that we cannot sell creates an additional expense to ditto’s ministry. We do our best to donate unsold items to other ministries in need, but we only pass along items that are worthy of using.

Where do I drop off donations?

Please drop off clothing and small item donations at our Donation Door located on the far right hand side of the building. If you are dropping off furniture or a large appliance, go to the donation door and a volunteer will get one of the managers. The manager will assess your donation, open the furniture door and show you where the item goes. Please have help with you to carry the item in. Please understand that not all items are accepted. A tax receipt will be provided for all items accepted.
