JFS Resale Shop: When you give GOOD STUFF, we can do GREAT THINGS.

The JFS Resale Shop inventory is provided from the gently-used donations from individuals, families and businesses in the greater Dallas area. Please take a few moments to review our list of acceptable and unacceptable items.

Donations drop off:
You can drop off your donations of gently-used items at The Resale Shop or Jewish Family Service during the below mentioned hours.

At JFS please go to the front of the office. Wear a mask and enter the vestibule at the front of the building. On your right, there are bins designated for clothing, household goods, etc. Please place your items in the appropriate bin. If needed, take a donation receipt from the tray across from the bins.

Due to space at JFS, furniture is only accepted directly at the store locations.

Donation Pick-Up Policy
Because of the high-volume of donations received and our limited pick-up resources, please understand that we cannot schedule same-day pickups. While we will always try our best to work with your schedule, pick up appointments should take place 7-14 days from initial contact. Because of safety concerns, please ensure that all items to be picked up are on the ground floor.

To schedule your donation pick-up, call 214-710-1362 or email jrotunda@jfsdallas.org
