Thrift Store Donation Guidelines

Did you know?

While our Thrift Store does sell items at economical prices to support operating costs, a large amount of the items in the store are given away for free to guests and community members in need. Hundreds of people come weekly during our Monday & Wednesday assistance hours to receive this help.

Donations can be dropped off at:

705 E 8th St

Monday 10AM-4PM

Tuesday-Friday 9AM-4PM

Ring the bell at the door next to the garage and we will come collect your items during these hours.

We are grateful for you contribution!

A few good things to know:

BONUS – BALER ITEMS: We CAN take damaged clothing items! Any donation that cannot be put in the store will go in our baler. We’re able to sell those bales to a company that turns them into building materials – so even your socks with holes can support the needs of the Mission!

 We always need hygiene items!

 Big or small, we take it all – full size products are used for guests, and travel size items are added to hygiene kits to be distributed to the community.

Helpful items include:

  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Body Wash & Bar Soap
  • Deodorant
  • Toothbrushes & Toothpaste
  • Feminine Products
  • Shavers
  • Washcloths
  • Socks
  • Combs & Hairbrushes (new only)
  • Lotion
  • Nail Clippers
  • Kleenex
  • Band-aids
  • Bottled Water
  • Granola Bars
