We hope you will continue to donate your other previously loved goods to Dorcas Ministries. As a general guide, we are unable to accept the following items for reasons that include, but are not limited to:  Safety & Liability Concerns, Space Limitations, or Does Not Meet Our Resale Focus.

Dorcas reserves the right to accept or decline any item at the discretion of staff on duty. Condition of the item(s) being donated, salability, and current inventory levels are some of the factors considered at the time of donation.

Effective Saturday, March 18, Dorcas will begin directing all furniture donations to our fellow nonprofit neighbor in the Dorcas Plaza, Habitat Wake ReStore. By April 1, Dorcas will no longer sell traditionally bulky furniture items like living room seating, all tables/chairs, bedroom furniture, storage cabinets, area rugs and large framed art (36″x48″ max). Dorcas is well-loved in our community and receives thousands of items daily. This change will consolidate all furniture sales under one business and further support Habitat’s work in our community. Dorcas will focus on selling less bulky items that can be loaded into a shopping cart, and provide a simplified customer experience for our shoppers.
