Donation Guidelines

Thank you for choosing the Mercy Center for Women to donate your gently used items. Your donations go directly to the women and children who reside at the MCW. Some of the items donated, especially household ones, are saved for the women when they have achieved self-sufficiency and are ready to move into their own apartments. After careful consideration, the remaining clothing items are sold in Our Daily Threads Thrift Store. The proceeds stay in-house to benefit the women and children. 

Please be sure all items are clean and gently used. We must dispose of dirty, stained, too-worn, non-working, or wet items. Box or bag all items you are donating. This minimizes damage while moving from one location to another. 

A few things to keep in mind: 

  • We accept only in-season clothing. For example, if we are going into the Spring/Summer seasons, we will not be accepting Fall/Winter clothing. We have no storage space for these items in our facility. 
  • We do not accept men's clothing. 
  • Items left-over from garage and block sales are not accepted. 

Thank you for understanding!

Per Pennsylvania law, we cannot accept used car seats. We are unable to prove that the car seat was not in an accident; if it was, its safety could be compromised.
