You Donate

Kids Find Life Outdoors!

We’ll take your stuff!

Leftover garage sale items taking up space in your garage?

Cleaning out closets?

Filling up boxes as you prepare to move?

Start a box for The Acorn Resale Shop! We happily accept items that are non-smelly, not broken, clean, and useable items. Before loading your car to bring items over, double-check the list below for items that we do and do not accept.

Bring your boxes to our Donation Door on the east side of the building during business hours. When the store is closed, feel free to drop off your items at The Acorn Shed. 

Don’t forget to pick up a donation receipt before you leave. Donations are not accepted at Camp Roger or Camp Scottie.

For large items that need to be dropped off, contact our store first at 616-884-0995 to make sure we accept them or have room to accept them.

The sale of your donated items will help Camp Roger and Camp Scottie send kids to camp. Let's help get those kids outside!
