Founded in 1992, the mission of The RI Donation Exchange Program (RIDEP) is to improve the quality of life for those individuals and families least able to meet their basic needs.
The RI Donation Exchange Program operates a Donation Center/Furniture Warehouse by soliciting donations of good quality furniture from community business partners and individuals statewide. These items are passed on to qualified individuals and families who have been referred to our program by our member agency, which include homeless and domestic violence centers, CAP agencies, drug/alcohol rehab programs and community centers. In January of 2017, Comprehensive Community Action Program (CCAP) and the RI Donation Exchange Program entered into an agreement in which CCAP would manage, stabilize and improve RIDEP’s operations. In addition, CCAP has established the RI Donation Exchange Program as a job training site for youth in customer service, retail sales and furniture refurbishing.
We welcome donations of furniture and housewares items which we sell at our Donation Center to raise funds for our operations. We gladly accept items in good condition such as couches, bureaus, desks, chairs, bookcases, tables, lamps, clocks, artwork, hutches, mirrors and other home goods.
Our new Furniture Warehouse/Donation Center is located at 125 Ernest St, Providence, RI 02905 (February 11, 2020) and is open Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 am-3pm and Saturday from 9am-1pm. We offer free pick up for your larger donations of furniture. Please call 401-831-5511 to schedule a pick up.
The Rhode Island Donation Exchange Program is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. (IRS Tax ID: 22-2603126) The Rhode Island Donation Exchange Program does not set a valuation on your donation. It's up to you to assign a value to your item. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. For professional advice, please consult your tax advisor.
