Donate OppShop


 

Your generous tax-deductible donations are the lifeblood of our organization. We thank you for your support! All donations and proceeds of OppShop and the Reuse and Recycle Program benefit our mission at Opportunity House.  By donating items to OppShop you are diverting waste from landfills, which helps improve our local environment. 

 

If you wish to donate an item that is not on this list, please call Cynthia Brown at 610-374-4696 ext. 221.

 

Items can be donated behind OppShop at our drop-off facility during our hours of operation (Monday-Saturday from 10-7 and Sundays from 11-6) or at any of our local donation bins.

 

Please note: All donations will be accepted at the discretion of staff. We have to pay to dispose of items that can't be reused or recycled, which takes away from our charitable mission. 

 

* We are no longer accepting leftover items from yard sales, rummage sales, or church bazaars.
