Want to donate?
Your high-quality items help keep this ministry flowing and the community going. So next time you or your friends want to clean out your closets and dispose of no longer needed high quality clothes, furniture and/or household items, think of NAM.
How it Works
NAM staff will only accept items in good enough shape that the items can generate revenue for NAM programs through their sale. Please do not be offended if they do not accept your entire donation.
Need to drop off a donation?
NAM Resale is accepting donations dropped off at NAM Resale Donation Center Behind NAM Main Building 15555 Kuykendahl Rd., Houston, Texas 77090
NAM Resale Donation Center Hours
Tuesday-Thursday 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Friday 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Please refer to “Donated Items We Can Not Accept”, below, for information about donation acceptance procedures.
Need to have a furniture or large item donation picked up?
NAM Resale is scheduling donation pickups for furniture and other large donations from homes and businesses, within a limited collection zone, Tuesday-Friday.
The BEST way to request a pickup is email us at ResaleDonate@namonline.org. Include in your message your contact information, description of donation, your ZIP Code. We request for furniture and large item pickups, donors email pictures of the intended donated items, with your request, for review.
If you are unable to email and need to have a donation scheduled for pickup, call our donations line at (281) 855-4545. Leave a message, including you contact information, description of your donation and your ZIP code. We request for furniture and large item pickups, donors email pictures of the intended donated items for review to ResaleDonate@namonline.org.
Please refer to “Donated Items We Can Not Accept”, below for information about donation acceptance procedures.
The driver will also review donations upon arrival. The driver is trusted to reject portions or the entire donation, if the donation is not reasonably resaleable. If any portion of your donation is rejected, please do not be offended, unsalable donations increase NAM Resale operating expenses and reduce funding to NAM programs. If this does occur, it will be your option to either allow the driver to collect the items that are not rejected or to cancel your donation completely.
How will NAM Resale donation pick-up help prevent the spread of COVID-19?
To assist in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, the Coronavirus, NAM has changed our donation pickup requirements:
- The driver will not be making close contact with anyone in your home.
- The driver will not enter your home, except the garage, if requested.
- Donations will need to be left outside or inside of the garage, clearly marked for pickup.
- The driver is screened daily, before departing.
- Receipts will be issued by email.
We appreciate your understanding of these temporary precautions during this difficult time. If you are unable to prepare your donation for pick-up to meet these requirements, we will be more than happy to schedule you once you are able to meet these requirements or after the current crisis has passed.
All donors must wear Face Masks and social distancing protocols will be in place.
Can NAM Resale issue a donation tax receipt for tax preparation?
Donation receipts are now paperless and are emailed to all donors who wish. Donations at the Donation Center are emailed immediately after the donor completes a survey at the door.
Donation receipts are emailed directly to donors who have their donations picked up by our driver, after the donation collection is confirmed.
Not all donations are 100% tax deductible. Please refer to a qualified tax professional or the IRS for specifics in regards to your tax situation.
