Thrift Store Donation Policy

New and gently used donations from the community are vital to our INN Style Resale Store (formerly Friends of the Inn Thrift Store). Proceeds from the thrift stores help fund the programs and services provided by The Samaritan Inn. Residents of the Inn are also provided with vouchers to the thrift stores to purchase clothing and other personal items. Upon graduating, they receive furniture and household vouchers for their new place of residence.

Your cooperation is appreciated in following our donation policies and procedures:

•  Please DO NOT leave donations outside of the store before or after donation hours. These items are stolen,  vandalized and exposed to the elements which cause them to be unsellable.

•  We appreciate your understanding that we may not be able to accept items that we deem unsafe or unsellable. Accepting these items requires us to incur disposal costs which directly impact funding for our much needed programs.

• All donations of clothing should be in bags or boxes; no hangers.

Please review the list of items that we cannot accept:

Air Conditioners




Exercise Equipment

Furniture that is ripped, soiled or damaged or that needs extensive dismantling (such as bunk beds)

Household Paints or Hazardous Materials

Large Household Appliances


Mattresses & Box Springs

Plumbing Supplies

Swing Sets & Trampolines
