Why donate to NAM Resale?
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, you can donate your high quality clothes, furniture and/or household items to support our work of helping our neighbors in need.
How it Works
NAM staff can 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.
The easiest way to donate is to drop off your donation at the NAM Donation Center garage door during open hours (see below).
You can also schedule a pickup for furniture and large items. Pickup services are available from homes and businesses within a limited collection zone during normal business hours. The driver will review donations upon arrival, and is trusted to reject portions or the entire donation, if the donation is not reasonably resaleable.
Please check the rules here to see if you have items we cannot accept. 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.
Can NAM Resale issue a donation tax receipt for tax preparation?
Yes! Donation receipts are now paperless and are emailed to all donors who want to receive a receipt.
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.

An item of clothing that is not in good used condition or better for which you take a deduction of more than $500 requires a qualified appraisal and Form 8283, Section B.
