Thrift Shop Needs

We would appreciate the following types of items for the thrift shop:

  • Clothing: 
Clean and gently used clothing, coats, handbags, boots, shoes, jewelry, and accessories for men, women, and children. Most needed is seasonal clothing for fall and winter. Must be clean.
  • Household items: 
Bed linens, towels, curtains, drapes, dish sets, glassware, cutlery, small working appliances, pots and pans, mixing bowls, and kitchen utensils.
  • Furniture & decorative items:
 Small furniture, chairs, tables, sofas, bookshelves, bureaus, lamps, clocks, pictures, frames, mirrors, and other home furnishings.
  • Miscellaneous:
 Books, DVDs, videos, jigsaw puzzles, sports equipment, and bicycles.

Donations can be dropped off during hours of operation on Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10am to 5pm.

Please note:
We do not accept donations of old computers, electronic equipment, exercise equipment, encyclopedias, magazines, skis, stuffed animals, or baby equipment.
Due to storage limitations, we can only accept seasonal merchandise. We invite you to hold on to your off-season items, or donate them to another reputable organization.
Please call first before bringing in large furniture items to make sure we have room in the thrift shop.
Please be sure all donated items are clean and in working order.
