Resale Shop Donations
The Florida United Methodist Children’s Home accepts a wide variety of donations. Clean, usable household items including furniture, dishes, and clothing can be used within the programs of the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home. Surplus items will be sold at the Heart and Home Resale Shop, located in Orange City. Proceeds from the resale shop go directly back to the operations of the Children’s Home. Please donate items that are in good usable and working condition. When we receive items that are broken, torn, damaged, or stained we must dispose of them, which raises our expenses and reduces the revenue available to help support the residents we serve.

Donation Values and Taxes
Heart and Home Resale Shop staff will issue and sign a receipt with donations that are dropped off during donation hours. Donors are responsible for maintaining all tax records as well as assigning values to donated items. The IRS allows you to take deductions on clothing and household items that are in good condition. The US Internal Revenue Service requires that you value your donation when filing your return. You can download a list that will give approximate values for your donated items and you can use these ranges as a general guide to assess the value.
