You can drop off your gently used clothing, furniture, kitchen wares, appliances, bedding, sporting goods, books, tools, linens, musical instruments, and other miscellaneous items. We simply ask that its condition is suitable for re-sale. Unsaleable items cost us needed money to pay landfill fees. We do not accept mattresses, box springs, analog televisions, and computers.

Running our store is a labor intensive process. We have over one hundred volunteers who graciously give their time to the operation of the thrift shop. But that is still not enough. There are times when we must close our donation drop off area due to lack of staff. We need volunteers to Greet our Donors at their car and Unload Donations as well as Assisting with the Loading of Purchases. We are in great need of CASHIERS and we need help with Pricing, Displaying Merchandise, Cleaning & Pricing Artwork, Putting Shoes out in the men, women and children's areas, Assisting Cashier and Pricing Clothing.

We process hundreds maybe thousands of pieces of clothing and miscellaneous items daily. We could use your help to inspect and process these items. Whatever your skills or areas of expertise, we have a job for you.
