Please Read Before You Donate A TV

We are always thankful for donations of gently used items from everyone in the community. The profits generated from the sales in our Thrift Stores help to keep The Hope Center free of charge to our residents and guests.

But sometimes things donated end up costing us money. When certain items are broken or can’t be sold, we pay to have them trashed which is money that could be used in better ways around The Hope Center.

With that being said, please take a minute to review our new TV unit policy:

  • We are not able to pick up TV’s
  • If you have a TV that works, please bring it to us during store hours (M-S 9AM-5PM)
  • All TV(s) will be checked on the spot and if they work we will accept them
  • We can only accept TV’s that were manufactured in 2001 or later

We apologize if this is an inconvenience for anyone. We appreciate everyone who donates items to The Hope Center. Please continue to think of us as you clean out your closets, basements & garages! Your gently used items do so much more than you possibly know to help bring hope to the community!

If you have any questions about donations, please call 301.739.1165 or email us at

Urgent Need!!

We are in desperate need of gently used furniture for our Thrift Stores.

Hagerstown Thrift Store

Recently, donations of furniture are down – in a big way. We understand that in a bad economy people are holding onto furniture longer or giving it to family members who are struggling. But if you have furniture that you’ve been thinking of replacing, or furniture that you are not using, and you’d like to help us by donating it, please call our office to schedule a pick-up.

If you, or someone you know, has couches, love seats, dining sets, chairs, beds, shelves, end tables, night stands, dressers, desks, hutches, recliners, curios or any other type of furniture that is in the way or that you don’t need – please think of us!

The proceeds generated from furniture sales provide operating revenue which allows The

Chambersburg Thrift Store

Hope Center to remain independent of government funding. As donations of furniture have declined, so has the profitability of our stores. While we are incredibly thankful for the amount of clothing & housewares donated, we do still need furniture in our stores.

This is a very urgent need so if you have unused or no longer needed furniture, please call us at 301.739.1165 or email us at to schedule a pick-up. Furniture donated will be placed in our Hagerstown or Chambersburg Thrift Stores. Furniture is priced so that families in need can afford to purchase. And we also provide furniture free of charge to those who cannot purchase.

Thank you for your assistance!! You are helping to make a difference right here in your community!
