Donating goods to Emmaus Suffolk

Donating goods to Emmaus Suffolk

One very important way in which you can help Emmaus Suffolk is to donate items which we can then sell. We rely on your continued support and kind donations to keep us going and always do our utmost to sell, recycle or otherwise get an income from everything you give us.

We are happy to accept most household items, clothing, shoes and more, but there are some exceptions for either legal or practical reasons.

The rule of thumb when deciding whether your items are suitable to donate is – Will someone be willing to buy it from our shop?

We are currently accepting donations Mondays and Tuesdays, 10am – 3pm at The Dales only.
