Donate to the Bargain Box

Please use the rear loading dock when bringing donations to the store. You can drive right up to the loading dock, making the drop-off very easy! Donations are not accepted during inventory, which occurs the last three to four days of May.

Donations are accepted Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Jewelry, purses, shoes, infant and children’s clothes through 6x and household items should be brought in boxes or handled bags.

Bargain Box appreciates all clothing and household donations. In order to ensure that your gently used goods best support the needs of others, make sure all items are in working condition and contain all of their pieces and parts. Clothing donations should be free of stains, holes and tears.

There are a few items that we can’t accept, including large appliances and used mattresses and items that have been recalled, banned or do not meet current safety standards. If you have any questions about what we can accept, please contact us at 919-833-7587.

Thank you for your continued support of Bargain Box and the constituents we serve.
