NOTE: Please do not leave donations at stores or donation sites, which are all closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Hold your donations until we reopen to prevent them from being stolen or ruined in the rain. Please stay safe by practicing social distancing and extra hygiene.

We Need Your Used Goods

We accept clothing, books, CDs, household goods, small appliances, bicycles, cars and other vehicles, and more. HopeTHRIFT needs what we sell: items in “like new” to “gently worn” condition. Non-running motor vehicles are OK, but for everything else, please, nothing broken, torn, badly stained, or needing repair!
