We need your gently used furniture!
Furniture is a popular item here at ThriftWorks! and we’d love for you to consider donating your gently used furniture. All furniture must be pre-approved for donation, or if you bring it directly to our donation drop-off, please know it may be rejected due to condition.
How to donate your furniture
  • Take photo of furniture and email to thriftworks@wacosa.org
  • You can bring furniture directly to our donation bay, however, it may be turned down based on condition. We highly recommend you email photos and get pre-approval to save you time.
  • Our ThriftWorks! furniture specialists will review your furniture photos and get back to you as soon as possible.
  • Please note we are not offering pick-up services at this time.
  • Note, we reserve to turn down furniture upon arrival to the store. Sometimes condition issues are not apparent in the photo.

Things to consider
  • ThriftWorks! cannot provide deep cleaning or repairs on donated items. The item should be sales floor ready.
  • WACOSA ThriftWorks! is a nonprofit serving individuals with disabilities in Central Minnesota. When items that are in poor condition get donated, there is a large cost in recycling or disposing of the item. While we never like to say no to our generous donors, we may do so in order to maximize our funding to our cause.
