Thank you for choosing Peak Thrift as your donation destination!

We appreciate your gently used items that will not only help youth facing homelessness become self-sufficient, but will provide additional funding to Urban Peak to continue their programs. However, it is sometimes necessary to say "no thank-you" to certain items that are non-recyclable or contain hazardous materials. Other items must be refused because it costs more to transport, repair or refurbish than the item can be sold for in our store. 

Our donation attendants are trained to know what we can and cannot accept, and will help guide you to ‚Äčother possibilities for donations we cannot use. Also, visit our Alternate Donation Locations page to find other organizations we partner with who will take some of the items we cannot accept.
