Donating to the Hospice Thrift Shoppes

Furniture, Clothing, Housewares, Jewelry, Home & Garden, Vintage

Hospice Thrift Shoppes need your donations of gently used furniture, clothing, housewares, jewelry and vintage items. If you have items of furniture to donate, we will pick them up at your home. To schedule a pick-up time, please call us at (925) 674-9072. Delivering your donations in bags that weigh less than 20lbs is much appreciated.

A Note to our Generous Donors

The Hospice Thrift Shoppes do not have a central processing facility, all donations are processed by our staff and volunteers at the store which receives them. Please be careful to include only those items which you think are resaleable. We have to pay to dispose of unusable donations—a cost which comes out of the funds we provide for patient care. Please give us a call if you’re unsure about your donation.

empty house Liquidating an estate can be a difficult and emotionally challenging task. Hospice East Bay can help by providing reliable estate services. We will meet with you at no charge to determine which of the following options is right for you. An Estate Sale may be appropriate, if the following conditions are met:
  • At least 30 days advance notice;
  • Estate contents valued above $10,000 (at “garage sale” prices);
  • Location easily accessible to the public
An Estate Cleanout is the best option for most people. Cleanouts require only 7-10 days notice. We will transport saleable items to our Hospice Thrift Shoppes, haul away any trash (disposal fees are charged to the estate), provide you with a donation letter for tax purposes, and leave the home empty and ready for cleaning. Schedule an appraisal today! (925) 260-2176 Proceeds from our Estate Services directly support the patients and families in the care of Hospice East Bay.
