All merchandise donations are tax-deductible. A receipt will be provided.

Donation Drive

A donation or collection drive is a great way for your business or organization to participate in our mission. The goal of a drive is to obtain an outpouring of donations of gently-used clothing, shoes and books, plus other household goods.

Only 4 Easy Steps

  • Give us a call. We will help you pick a date for your drive.

  • Designate an area in your building to accept and store donations over the course of the drive.

  • Promote your Collection Drive Event through flyers, social media, etc.

  • An Overflow Thrift Store truck will pick up the donations you have collected at the end of your drive.

Overflow Thrift Stores will provide a sample flyer for you to use to help promote your event plus social media support. The possibilities are endless!
