Acceptance Policy

Why does AMVETS not accept some items?

Clothing donations to AMVETS are greatly appreciated. However, AMVETS receives items that cannot be used and they must be discarded. If we accepted those items, it would raise expenses and reduce the amount of revenue available for the different AMVETS programs.

Does AMVETS throw some items away?

When AMVETS receives items that cannot be used, when possible, they are recycled and sold for salvage. These items include broken, torn, and damaged items and products that have been recalled by the Consumer Products Safety Commission. Those items are disposed of for the safety of our customers. Once again, all expenses associated with the above reduce the revenue available for our programs.

Are my donations tax deductible?

Yes.
