Furniture and other large donations

Due to limited space at the Donation Center, CAPSEA has partnered with House to Home in Ridgway to accept large donations. We request that all oversized donations be dropped off at any House to Home location. As part of this partnership, those that we serve are able to shop at House to Home for critical home essentials at no cost.

Thank you to House to Home for your partnership, and for all that you do to help our community!
