Pick-Up Policy

Because of the high-volume of donations received and our limited pick-up resources, please understand that we cannot schedule same-day pickups. While we will always try our best to work with your schedule, pick up appointments should take place 7-14 days from initial contact. Because of safety concerns, please ensure that all items to be picked up are on the ground floor.

To schedule your donation pick-up, call 214-710-1362 or email jrotunda@JFSdallas.org.

What does The Resale Shop do with items that don’t sell?
Where possible, items that are placed on the sales floor but do not sell are recycled and sold to third party vendors who will send these items to third world countries. This only pertains to clothing and shoes.
Why does The Resale Shop not accept some items?
All donations that The Resale Shop can sell in its store are greatly appreciated. However, when The Resale Shop receives items that cannot be used, staff must dispose of them, raising expenses and reducing the revenue available for us to serve clients through our programs.

Tips for Donors

  • Check your items before donating to make sure all are items you want to give to The Resale Shop.
  • Check pockets of clothing for jewelry, money and other valuable items that you might not want to donate.
  • Separate clothing and shoes from other household items.
  • Check to ensure that items you are donating are not soiled, stained or ripped.
  • Test electrical equipment and battery-operated items to make sure they work.
  • Include all pieces and parts to household appliances
