The HOPE Chest – Thrift Store/Boutique enables us to meet the needs of the community in many ways. Our store is blessed with many quality donations from the community. Our customers come to our store to find amazing bargains and in the process, support our ministry. If we have a family in crisis, we can provide them with everything to make their situation bearable, and if they are homeless, once we are able to help them attain housing, we can provide them with basic needs. Proceeds from the sales help support the programs for families we serve.
We partner with many agencies and faith-based organizations in the Central Florida area who refer their families to us to receive items, such as clothing, shoes, household items, school supplies, furniture, new bedding, infant items, and more.
If you would like to donate items, please see below for items that we do and do not accept. To schedule a donation pick-up, please see the guidelines and options for scheduling below. If you need to contact the Store Manager, please email email@example.com.
As of July 2022, HOPE Helps is also partnering with ReSupply for donation pickups! If you would like to donate large items such as furniture or appliances and will need your items picked up quickly from your home or business, you now have the option to request that ReSupply deliver your donations to HOPE for a fee. To schedule a donation pickup with ReSupply, please click the blue “Donation Pickup” button at the bottom right of the screen.

Did you know that families who are in need receive vouchers for the store so that they are able to get items such as appliances, clothing, and shoes? Please keep this in mind when donating your items to The HOPE Chest as we cannot give them anything that is dirty, stained, soiled, ripped, and/or broken, which means we cannot accept any items of this nature. At this time, we are not accepting Armoirs or Entertainment Centers. Furniture donations are accepted at the discretion of the staff members. Please call ahead to confirm availability and space before dropping off furniture donations.
Pick Up Donations
We will schedule pickups for furniture and appliances within a 10-mile radius of The HOPE Chest. We cannot accept non-working appliances; appliances will be tested before we take them.
