(WXYZ) — Salvation Army stores in metro Detroit will begin accepting donations on Monday morning.

Donations of gently-used clothing, linens, household appliances, furniture, toys, shoes and more will be accepted from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. All donations will be quarantined for 72 hours.

Residential pickup service is still on pause but will resume at a later date.

Donation centers will continue to be contactless and people must remain in their vehicle while employees wearing PPE will retrieve donations from the truck. They are asking people to clearly label donations.

“The Salvation Army anticipates an influx of donations and we kindly ask for everyone’s patience while dropping off items,” said Envoy Jacqulynn Idzior, The Salvation Army ARC assistant administrator. “Our main priority is the safety and comfort of our employees and donors during this process.”

Thrift stores will remain closed until the stay-at-home order is lifted.
