Furniture Donations

Thank you for thinking of Home of the Sparrow.  At home of the Sparrow we accept donations of gently used or new items of furniture, clothing, shoes and accessories, housewares, books and toys. We reserve our trucks for large furniture pick-ups but our Sparrow’s Nest Thrift Stores are happy to receive any bags or boxes of smaller items. Due to increasing waste disposal costs,  please look at list below for items we will not accept.
