Our Standards of Excellence
HIAS PA is only able to accept new or gently used items that are clean and in good and working condition.  We do not have the capacity to clean or fix items. Consider: Would you give this item to a loved one?

What We Do Accept

  • Furniture, though we are only able to do so on a case-by case basis
  • Household Goods
  • New and much needed items donated through our Target Registry

Please refer to the next section of this page for specific procedures regarding furniture and household goods.

What We Do Not Accept

  • Clothing and Shoes
  • Decorative Items and Knickknacks
  • Mattresses
  • Used and worn pillows
  • Large Electric Appliances

If you are hoping to donate something we do not accept, please refer to our partners who also accept donations.

If your donations match our needs, please read about our donation procedures.  Please note we are best able to accommodate your donation if you follow these procedures, and that phone calls to our office will not expedite a donation. Thank you for your understanding.

Furniture donations intake is currently very limited due to capacity issues.  If we are unable to take your item(s) we will refer you to other fantastic organizations. Thank you in advance for your understanding!

Donating Furniture

We accept furniture on a case-by-case basis.  Please note our capacity (as of October 2019) is currently very limited.  If unable to accept, we will refer you to partner organizations.

All donations require at least 3 pieces of furniture.  Our top needs are:

  • Kitchen Table and Chair Sets
  • Dressers and Chests of Drawers

Please fill out this form if interested in donating furniture. You will receive a response in minimally 5 business days.

Donating Household Goods

Currently we accept the following, in clean and working condition.

  • Cutlery, Dishware, and Glassware
  • Pots and Pans
  • Bedding and Towels

Our donations dropoff center is located in Wynnewood.  If you have questions, contact community@hiaspa.org with the subject line “Household Goods Donation.”

Donating New Items

Thank you for considering donating new items.  We have identified our top needs and shared them on our Target Registry. When you purchase here, the items will be shipped to our office and you will receive a receipt of contribution in the mail. We thank you for your generosity.
