Donate To Hodgepodge

Have items you’d like to donate to one of our store locations? Community donations and support are what allows us to achieve our mission. Come on by during our donation hours, no appointment necessary! When you donate, you receive a tax-deductible donation receipt as well as a 10% discount if you shop in our store on the same day!


Donating to our Hodgepodge Stores is easy! Just pull up to our back parking lot at either our Novato or San Rafael locations during our donation hours and we will be there, ready to help. We accept common household items, clothing, artwork, and more! No appointment needed. See a detailed list of what we accept and don’t accept below.
