Note: Because of limited storage space, resources and other concerns, Stone House reserves the right to decline any in-kind donations. Due to the commitment of staff time involved, we are not always able to pick up items. All donors are asked to refer to our list of needs and contact Stone House before making a donation. Finally, as the IRS outlines, the valuation of any in-kind donation is the responsibility of the donor.
