How & Where to Donate

<< Back to Thrift Stores

We invite you to donate your gently used items to your local ReTails Thrift Stores. With two conveniently located donation centers, it's easier than ever to donate and help support the mission of the Humane Society for Southwest Washington.

Donation Trailer Eastside (in the HSSW Shelter Parking Lot) / 1100 NE 192nd Avenue, Vancouver, WA  98684
Donation Hours: Seven days a week, 8:00am - 5:00pm
   ** We are unable to accept furniture at this location

ReTails Thrift Store on Fourth Plain  / 5000 East Fourth Plain Boulevard, Vancouver, WA 98661
Donation Hours: Seven days a week, 10:00am - 5:00pm

Every time you choose to donate your unwanted clothing and household items, instead of discarding them in the trash, you participate in helping the Humane Society afford food, shelter, medical care and humane education programs to positively affect thousands of animals and citizens a year.

Your donation makes an impact at every level:

  • Our community, because your dollars stay local to southwest Washington
  • Our customers, who rely on access to quality goods at great values
  • The animals, who benefit from life-saving resources afforded by the money we raise
  • Our planet, through waste reduction and natural resource conservation

Please take into consideration the following guidelines when preparing your donation:

  • We do not have a repair facility, and thus cannot fix items that are stained, broken or are in poor condition.
  • We cannot accept items that have been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Please check their website,, for a list of recalled items.
  • We do not accept hazardous, poisonous or flammable materials.
  • The Golden Rule: If you would consider giving it to a friend, then the item is most likely in good condition and appropriate to donate to ReTails Thrift Stores.

We would love to receive your donations of the following items, in good condition:

  • Antiques
  • Baby Items (please, no cribs or car seats)
  • Books, Music & Movies
  • Brand Name Items for our Boutique!
  • Clothing

Every time you donate your used goods, we will offer you a receipt. This is your chance to record what you gave to ReTails Thrift Stores and keep that receipt for tax purposes. Please check with your tax professional about the value of contributions.

We appreciate your donations of quality, reusable items at our ReTails Thrift Store!
