Your donation of goods directly helps a local family.

procedure to accept furniture donation

Once you call in to offer a donation, we line up an inspection of the items to be donated.  We strive to be prompt with the inspection, and once the inspection passes, we'll schedule a pick-up.  We inspect for quality, cleanliness, inventory needs of the GAP Ministry.  For donations coming from outside of Worthington,  we apologize for being unable to assign an inspection or pick-up due to the limited driving range of our volunteers.  However, you may schedule an inspection of the items when you drive them into town.
