When can I donate my items?

You can donate items during business hours, which are:

Thursday from 10 am to 7 pm
Please note that we are closed on Sundays and, therefore, do not accept donations on that day.

Can I donate items after business hours?

Please do not leave your items at Bloomin’ Deals when the store is not open. It is a violation of Section 66-282 of the City of New Orleans code to leave donations when receiving is closed.

How can I receive a receipt for my donated items?

JLNO is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is tax deductible. Please download, complete, and bring the Merchandise Donation form when you deliver your items. One of our staff will sign the document for you as a receipt. If you are unable to download the form, we can provide one to you when you arrive with your donations.

If I am a business, how can I donate my overstock?

Bloomin’ Deals gladly accepts new merchandise from businesses liquidating their overstock. To make arrangements, please contact our Bloomin’ Deals Committee at bloomindeals@jlno.org or call JLNO’s Headquarters at 504-891-5845.
