Where to donate items in the South Plainfield area

Running out of storage space? This page provides information on local, regional, and national organizations that can make good use of your used goods!

CAUTION: This list of organizations accepting donations of goods is offered as a starting point. The listing of any organization on this page is not an endorsement by the library, and we urge you to investigate any charity before making a donation. For your convenience, we have linked to charity reports by the Better Business Bureau, Charity Navigator, GuideStar, and/or ProPublica's Nonprofit Explorer NEW! where available. Please keep in mind that these groups use different criteria for evaluating charities, so we recommend that you check all three before making a donation. Also, since new evaluation reports may have been added which did not exist when this page was created, please check the above sources for reports if we have not linked them here. Please consult the Donor Resources listed below for general advice on making donations.
