Your donations benefit the community around us all.
Donations are accepted at ACTS Monday through Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
D o you have some spare clothes lying around, an unwanted coffee table or an old computer you do not need anymore donate at ACTS. At ACTS, we turn your trash into the community’s treasure. ACTS is unique — it’s a locally-established thrift store that contributes 100% of its net proceeds to provide financial support for programs that serve poor and disadvantaged families, children and the homeless in our community.
W hen you donate at ACTS, your spare clothing feeds a family, your unwanted coffee table tutors a child, and your computer gives hope to a homeless family in Pasadena and the foothill communities. That’s the type of trade we’re all looking for. Drop off or schedule a pick-up today!
Donations = Giving Back
It’s a really simple equation: the things you bring in can be sold back at the most incredible values to people who really need them. And the proceeds we make from those sales, come back to the Foothill Communities as well, as our partners, including the Lake Avenue Community Foundation, turn those funds into services for kids, teens and adults, alike.
So what can you donate? Click below for specifics.

Your donation of household items can positively impact families and change lives!

There are 100 million Cell Phones and Smart Phones retired each year with an estimated value of over $1 Billion dollars. Your phone donations help fund programs for at-risk youth and families.
