Thrift Shop Donations

Our 12 thrift shops thrive on community support. Donations of usable and resalable items in excellent condition such as women’s and men’s clothing are essential to keep our doors open. We also welcome jewelry, accessories, shoes, housewares, books, and furniture.

A designer dress that sells for $75 in one of our stores provides three weeks worth of hot meals for a homeless HIV+ mother and her child. An armchair that raises $400 pays for two weeks of supportive housing for a client who badly needs a stable home.

All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
