Making Donations

At Re:New

Donations are accepted during business hours:

Bring donations to the garage door on the east side of the building, facing Walgreens. Ring the bell, and we will be right there! If you have larger items to donate, such as furniture or appliances, contact us to arrange for free pick up.

On the Peoria Campus

You can also drop off donations at the Peoria Campus. Leave your donations by a Re:New sign in the lobby, in the Re:New trailer by the maintenance building, or ask a Dream Team member for assistance. If you would like a receipt, you can get one at the information desk.

Financial donations can be made in-store, or call us to make other arrangements. All donations are tax-deductible.

 

Donation Guidelines

Donated items must be clean, in working condition, contain all of their pieces and parts, and be free of stains and rips. While we accept most clothing and household items, there are a few things we cannot accept – such as items that have been recalled, banned or do not meet current safety standards. We also cannot accept aerosols, batteries, car parts or tires, guns, firearms, or weapons, chemicals, cleaners, pesticides or hazardous materials of any kind.
