Between the pandemic and snowmageddon, a lot of people are stuck in the house cleaning out closets and purging.  We've created a list of places to drop off donations.

I don't know if y'all are like me but I have way too much of everything.  I have a tendency to overbuy and forget about it.  With five people in our house, someone is always outgrowing or not using something.

Joe and I often have people contact us when they are getting rid of items especially clothing.  Many places you would expect to take clothes don't so instead of wasting your time piling it all in your vehicle I'll make it easier for you.

Make sure you read each location carefully as some only take certain items.

  • Graced Again-As individuals complete steps involved in transitioning out of local shelters, they often realize they have few of the basic household items needed to start over. Graced Again repurposes used household items to help these families begin their new lives.  Mrs. Brenda Howard Walker (270) 316-7219 founded this non-profit and loves helping others.  If you have furniture or household items you can always give her a call to donate.
  • Daviess-McLean County Baptist Mission-is a nonprofit community store that takes donations in (clean)clothes, food, and some household items.  Ms. Gayle Boling is the center director and would love to take your donation.  Contact (270)685-1225
  • St. Vincent De Paul-The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Western Kentucky offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis.  The Owensboro St. Vincent De Paul is amazing in working with a lot of non-profit organizations especially the shelters to help the residents get items they need.  They do have criteria for drop-off so please contact the store before you take any items to donate.
  • The Salvation Army- a Christian non-profit organization helping to meet the needs of those here in our community as best they possibly can.  They have a thrift store that helps to fund programming and community services offered.
  • Common Good Community Store-provides an affordable place for families to shop for furniture, household items, and clothing.
  • Daniel Pitino Shelter- is a local homeless shelter for families in the area.  They also take in gently used or new clothing items.  You can always check their Facebook page for current items needed.
  • New Life Thrift- is a non-profit thrift store that reinvests the money earned into the community for families.  They take clothing, furniture, and household items. See their Facebook page here.
