Donate to Deseret Industries

Thank you for supporting Deseret Industries! Your donations of gently used items contribute to our job-training program for people in the community, and we couldn’t do it without you.

Donation Appointment Update

Donation appointments are no longer required at any of our locations. We’re excited to return to unscheduled donation drop-offs! Here are a few things to keep in mind as you donate:

  • Donation hours may fluctuate as we adjust. Check your store location page for the most current donation hours.
  • Donation centers may close early if they fill up or become overwhelmed with donations.
  • To avoid waiting in long donation lines, consider donating at non-peak times, such as mornings or weekdays rather than weekends.
  • To help accelerate the donation process for everyone, please organize your donations before arriving at the store, and pack your donations in boxes, bags, or containers that you don’t need returned.
  • Please donate when the center is open. Leaving donations when the center is closed is illegal.
