eBay

We do our very best to steward your donated items, which is why some of our knowledgeable volunteers get together and handpick items to sell on our very own eBay site.

We have had several encounters where individuals want to be sure we won’t sell their valuable items for less than they are worth. The truth is, we value your valuables. This is how our eBay site was born.

If you are looking to move forward the mission of our poverty ministry by donating some of your valuable, vintage items, consider us.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen- 1 Peter 4:10-11

Furniture donations can be dropped off through the overhead door #8.

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.
