Donate Goods

Your Donations Make a Difference

Sans Souci relies on your donations of clothing, furniture and other household items for resale through our thrift store and for the Sans Souci Online Auction. The revenue collected from the sale of items in the store provide over 80% of the funding needed to support Sans Souci’s daily operations and programs. The Sans Souci thrift store offers very affordably priced items for all members of our community. 



We want to make donating as simple as possible for you.  Donations are collected at Sans Souci in the rear of the building every Monday through Friday from 10am – 5pm and on Saturday from 10am – 4pm.  We always have staff available to help you unload your donations and provide a receipt for your tax purposes. 



If you have items that are too heavy to move, or too large for your vehicle, please contact us for a free pickup within Bartholomew County.  Pickups are made Monday-Friday, 9am – 12noon and 1:30pm – 4:30pm. 

Please plan ahead; due to high demand, pickups of acceptable items are typically scheduled 2-4 business days in advance. 

To schedule your donation pickup, please call 812-372-3419.  Please note that per Sans Souci policy, staff/drivers cannot enter a residence for any reason. We request that all donations to be picked up are in an accessible and weather protected area such as a garage, driveway or porch.

Sans Souci greatly appreciates every donation that we receive!
However, when Sans Souci receives items that we cannot sell, we must dispose of them. Disposal of the following items can be costly and when we are left with these costs, the amount of funds we have available to help community members and our employees reduces. Sans Souci’s mission statement is to be the community partner that improves the ability of our neighbors to support themselves “without worry.” Together, we can help accomplish this mission and make Bartholomew County a better place to live and work.

Loose donation items need to be contained either in a box or bag. It is very difficult for us to get your totes back, so our preference is for you to bring them in something you don’t need back. Clothing should be taken off of the hangers, but the hangers can be donated as well.
