Inform a volunteer and they will assist in opening the doorway for you.

Do you offer exchanges or refunds?

We do our best to offer quality products. To avoid disappointment, we strongly encourage you to test any electrical items you want to purchase. When items are donated, we ask donors if electrical items work and use that information to help us value items.

We do not offer exchanges or refunds. In the event your purchase didn’t last as long as you’d hoped, we hope you will be consoled by the knowledge that your dollars spent will still be put to work helping the people served by The Well.

Do you charge sales tax?

No, we are exempt as a non-profit business.

Can you provide a receipt for my donations?

Yes! Simply request a receipt when you drop off your donated items.

Unfortunately, IRS regulations prevent us from assigning a dollar value to your items.
