Contactless donations will be accepted only on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 am – 12:00 noon.

Donors can place their merchandise directly in the large portable storage units located in the back of the shop’s parking lot. The merchandise will remain in the storage units for six days before entering the shop as per infection prevention guidelines. Customers can pick up donation forms in the tent by the storage units. Plexiglas dividers are in place in work stations in the donation areas.

“We are delighted to welcome the community safely back to our Thrift Shop,” said Stacey Green, director Volunteer Services.
