Items & Goods

Donated Goods

Joseph’s Coat is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays (9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.) to receive donated items that will be available in our store. You may also contact us to make an appointment to drop-off donations. We do not accept donations when we are closed.

We respectfully ask that all items be new or gently used, stain free, clean and in good repair. The standard at Joseph’s Coat is that if we would not wear or use an item, we do not ask our guests to do so either.




Please understand that Joseph's Coat is volunteer based and has limited space. We have no control over the amount of donations received. When our building is full, we must stop taking donations — even before our 2PM close time.
