Furniture Donations

We always need donated furniture to help our residents set up their new homes.  We can pick up your furniture  by arrangement. We can accept sofas, tables, chairs, shelves. dressers, and bed-frames. Sorry, we cannot accept pillows, bed linens, mattresses, tablecloths, or towels. To arrange a donation, please call Bob Trausch at 530-518-8509. Thank you!

Car & Vehicle Donations

We'll take your care or vehicle whether it's working or not, as we may be able to repair it. Call us at 530-228-1462 and we'll arrange getting the car or vehicle picked up.

  • If the vehicle is what we need for our staff or our residents, we'll use it right away or fix it up.

  • If it's not what we need, we'll pass it along to a vehicle broker for whatever they can sell it for. The vehicle broker will also accept trucks, RVs, boats, and even planes!

No matter how we use the vehicle donation, you'll get a tax receipt, either from us or from the vehicle broker after they sell the vehicle. If you have a vehicle you'd like to donate to CHAT, call Bill Kurnizki at 228-1462 and leave a message.
