We do not accept large appliances, furniture, television sets, computers, typewriters, text books, technical books, VHS Tapes or exercise equipment.  Our basement is not large enough for us to handle large items or out of date items.   The entrance is on the west side of the building.    We do ask that donations not be left outside the building at any time.   

New items are added weekly.   Mount Joy's Fourth Friday will also be our "Special Sale Day" both inside the store and outside (weather permitting).  So stop in and see us.

NOTHING IS WASTED! When items can no longer stay in the store, we have a list of places and persons to whom they can be donated .  We support Sunset Gap, a Community Center in Cosby, TN and Midnight Run, a mission to the homeless out of Dobbs Ferry, NY, The Pregnancy Center in Columbia, PA, Lancaster County Mental Health Court, Mount Joy Helping Services, FAITH Homes of Donegal.  We also donate locally to Purple Heart, churches in the area, and to families in need when we are notified.



We have a RADA display in the store.  RADA is the stainless steel cutlery that has been popular for years and sold in churches as fundraisers.  There are many items for you to look at and some are in stock so you can buy them right away.  For others, we'll put in your order and notify you when it comes in.  The turnaround time is usually about two weeks.
