  • DONATION CRITERIA

    1) We believe that our clients deserve a decent start in life as they reclaim their independence. So, the same criteria we have for donated clothing holds for furniture and household items.
    If you would not give the items you want to donate to your relatives, please do not expect us to take them.
    Unfortunately, we do not have time to repair or clean items which do not meet our standards.

    2) We take the following new or gently used furniture donations: twin, full and queen beds, kitchen tables and chairs, end tables, living room chairs and sofas, storage cabinets, gas stoves, washers and/or dryers. We can only accept WORKING flatscreen TV’s.

    Thank you for your help and understanding.

  • ATTENTION, FRIEND OF STH!!!

    Your generosity overwhelms us and space has become a precious commodity! Therefore, we can no longer take donations on Mondays starting MARCH 1, 2020. We will continue accepting donations Tuesdays through Fridays from 8 am to 3 pm.

    To become more efficient and steward your gifts better, we are asking our faithful donors to consider hosting a collection throughout the year to spread the wealth. It is simply impossible to handle all the wonderful donations during the holiday season, and our community relies on us all year. If your organization would be willing to schedule a collection, please contact us at accounts@sojournertruthhouse.org or at 219-885-2282 with months that would work for you.

    THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING!!!
