Epaphroditus accepts your donations and the revenue from the sale of those donations help to fund the many services and resources we provide to Grace Christian Ministry for the sake of the Gospel.

We gratefully accept gently used donations that can be sold online, at one of our Freewill Garage Sale events, or given in love to those in need. For items that do not sell or we can not pass on will be donated to other organizations like Not So Tiny House and The Salvation Army.

Items You Can Donate

Below are list of items we can accept for donations. If you have any of these items, or have questions, please contact us using the contact form on this page. Once submitted, someone from our team will follow up with you and arrange a time for pickup or delivery. Depending upon location, we may be able to provide free pick-up of large items or large quantities of items.

To make the donations process easy and efficient, bag or box items to be donated. Loose items are harder for our small team to handle and take more time to collect.

Clothing and Smaller Items

Epaphroditus accepts all clothing for men, women, infants and children. Smaller items like records, CD’s, movies, jewelry, shoes, purses, accessories, and more are acceptable. You can donate books, but not magazines or encyclopedias. Collectibles, jewelry, small antiques and linens such as sheets, blankets, pillowcases and towels are welcome. We also accept other household items, such as dishes and pans, but they must be clean and free of damage.

Electronics

You can donate small electronic items such as lamps, radios or televisions if they’re working. However, we do not accept TVs more than five years old. Cell phones, laptops, computers and other electronic devices are accepted, but delete all your personal information first. We cannot accept cathode-ray (CRT) computer monitors because they contain toxic material.

Appliances and Furniture

Large appliances are welcome, including washers, refrigerators, stoves and air conditioners, but they must be free of rust and in good working condition; power-cord must be included when needed. Epaphroditus doesn’t accept any gas appliances.

Wood furniture will be accepted if it’s in good structural condition without serious cosmetic flaws, but you can’t donate ready-to-assemble pressed-wood furniture. You can donate leather or fabric upholstered furniture that’s clean and in good condition, without stains or tears. We accept box springs and mattresses, but they must be free of tears or stains and structurally sound.

Other Large Items

You can donate counters and shelves for storage and displays, gardening equipment, farm equipment and tools. We accept some large exercise equipment, including treadmills and bicycles, but these items must be in good condition. These items will all be evaluated on an individual basis.

Items You Can’t Donate

All donations that Epaphroditus can sell or give away are greatly appreciated. However, when we receive items that cannot be used, we must pay to dispose or recycle them. This raises our expenses and reduces the resources we have available to fund the programs, services, and ministries of which we have partnered. Please dispose of the items listed below through an alternative responsible resource, such as your local recycling center.

Many other items not specifically on the donation lists are acceptable, providing they are safe and legal. However, we do not accept built-in appliances, kerosene appliances, large console stereos, television sets older than 5+ years, or automobile parts, including wheels or tires.

Potentially dangerous or polluting items, such as chemicals or paint, are not accepted. In addition, we do not accept any items that have been recalled — for example, baby furniture, car seats, and toys with small parts that present a choking danger.
