Our thrift stores are normally a hub of activity, a place of community where volunteers and staff alike serve our Guests thoughtfully, carefully and safely.

Items in our stores are pleasantly merchandised and priced extremely low to allow our Guests struggling with poverty or homelessness to have the luxury of choice, in a pleasing environment, while obtaining necessary clothing or household items.

Special note: For those who cannot afford to purchase items, such as victims of arson or floods, and for those who are making the transition from homelessness to a safe shelter, necessary items are provided free of charge through a voucher system at our thrift stores.

All merchandise in our Thrift Store is donated by individuals, businesses, faith organizations, schools, civic groups and other generous groups. We appreciate receiving new or clean, gently used clothing, shoes and household items.

To provide a safe and smooth donation experience, we ask you to call (978) 557-5449 before coming.

If You Prefer to Have Your Donation Picked Up

(Anywhere in the Greater Merrimack Valley)

We have recently partnered with Resupply, a veteran-run organization that will be doing our donation pick-ups for a small fee associated with their costs of operation. This new partnership will help us redirect the thousands of dollars that have traditionally been spent on staff, trucks, maintenance, gas, sorting donations and disposal to programs that impact the lives of our Guests.
