How to Donate to New Life Thrift
Donating to New Life Thrift is a great way to bless others in the community and is a simple process!
There are two ways this is done!
1) Drop It Off
During store hours, feel free to drop off smaller items at the back of the store by the dock doors. A list of what we do and don't accept is not only listed above,
but also at the drop-off point. We ask that you abide by these guidelines to make your donation experience hassle free, and help us avoid unnecessary costs to handle and dispose of worthless
2) We'll Pick It Up
You can call us at 215.886.8619 to schedule a pick-up time.
Our scheduler will pre-qualify your donation and will give you a date and an approximate time (within 2hrs.) during which your pick-up will occur. Please be aware that although we take many
items, we do not take everything.
For more information about pick-ups, please check out the Pick-up page.
Donated items are tax deductible. Simply ask for a tax receipt from the Thrift Store employee who assists you at the time of your drop-off or pick-up. For
more information about pick-ups, please check out the Pick-up and Delivery Services page.
The Pension Protection Act of 2006 states no deduction is allowed for charitable contributions of clothing and household items if such items are not
in "good used condition or better".
In addition, the IRS may deny a deduction for any item with minimal monetary value. For help in assessing value of donated items, please visit The Salvation Army's Value Guide for Donated
