Temporary Thrift Donation Policy

Donation Policy for No-Contact Donations

Before you begin the donation process, please familiarize yourself with the Thrift Store’s general requirements (available at jonnycake.org/donate) for what we can and cannot accept.

There are 3 easy ways to donate your goods to Jonnycake, helping us to fundraise for our Social Services & Food Pantry.

Drive ‘N Drop Open Donations

    • Clothes, small household goods. electronics, multimedia, artwork, supplies, and other treasures¬† are accepted without an appointment on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays between 10am and 2pm.
    • Do NOT dump items before or after the posted hours, or on Sundays. Doing so is a punishable offense due to the hazard it presents to our staff.
    • Large items and furniture must be donated by appointment only (see below for more).
    • Please remove hangers from clothing.
    • Please pre-sort and bag or box your donations. Clothes/linens/shoes should be separated from housewares. When you arrive at the Jonnycake rear parking lot, you’ll see big yellow carts labeled for housewares and for clothes/linens/shoes.
    • Due to space constraints, our staff may occasionally not be able to accept certain items that would normally be considered sellable. We regret any inconvenience caused.
