Donation Days and 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, too-worn, non-working, or wet items. Do not donate clothing on hangers. Box or bag all items you are donating. This minimizes damage while moving from one location to another. 

We accept only in-season clothing. For example, if we are going into the Fall/Winter seasons, we will not be accepting Spring/Summer clothing. We have no storage space for these items in our facility. Thank you for your understanding!


We cannot accept used car seats per Pennsylvania law. We cannot prove that the car seat was not in a previous accident, and if it was, its safety could be compromised.
