We are good stewards, responsibly planning and managing all of our resources: in-kind donations and services, corporate drives to restock our inventory, donations of clothing from the public, monetary gifting, controlling our utilities, recycling, reusing, and repurposing items.

Your Cash Donations
The Main Place accepts all types of clothing, shoes, purses, belts, and accessories, but we only present those that are lovely—new or like-new—to our clients.
They most likely have never had lovely before, but we treat them with dignity and give them the best. We do not hold to the reprehensible thought that if they have nothing, they should appreciate someone’s cast offs.
Donated items that do not meet our specifications are shared with other nonprofits. For the past four years, we have enjoyed a wonderful partnership with LEED certified National Recycling Solutions. Nothing goes to waste. Nothing goes into our landfill – cast offs are reimagined into insulation, a single shoe into artificial turf.
Donation criteria for new and like-new items:
• Clean and pressed
• On hangars or neatly folded in boxes
Donation criteria for all other items:
• Clean and folded in boxes
• Free of dog or cat hair
If your items are not clean or fresh,
you may put them in bags labeled "Need Cleaning."
We do not accept items that smell like
smoke, cat urine, or any other unpleasant odor.
