Furniture & Large Items

Due to limited storage, larger donations cannot be received at our Outreach office location. Furniture, household appliances and similar large household items are accepted on an as needed basis. Please call our Outreach office at (352) 377-5690 to coordinate your furniture or large item donation. You can also donate your furniture to one of our thrift store partners listed below.

Clothing Donations

Due to limited storage, we only accept clothing donations on Monday’s. Each week, we provide our clients the opportunity to sort through these donations and take whatever they need. Donations to our partner thrift stores enable us to supply our clients with an array of needs beyond the scope of what we can reasonably collect and store. Please consider donating to our community thrift store partners so we may keep this vital client resource. Be sure to tell them Peaceful Paths sent you!

Due to limited storage we cannot accept furniture and large donation items on a regular basis. If you have furniture you would like to donate to Peaceful Paths, please call to see if we can use it. Often times, we can give your donation to a client moving out of shelter. However, we need to make arrangements to store the items.
