Donating to S.H.A.R.E Thrift Store
Donations big and small are pivotal to operating our community-supporting programs. To ensure your donation creates the most positive impact possible, we encourage everyone to read and follow our donation guidelines and FAQ.
It is incredibly important to donate during our donation hours only.
We do not have staff or volunteers outside of these hours to manage the donations, especially furniture items. Because of this, your donation may become damaged by weather or vandalized. After-hour drop-offs often end up in the landfill, something that is a cost to us.
TL;DR: Donations dropped off outside of Wednesday - Saturday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm cost us money to dispose of - the opposite intention of your donation.
Monday - Saturday
10:00am - 4:00pm

Monetary donations to our general fund allow us the flexibility to address our various program needs faster and more effectively.
In addition to supporting our community programs, it allows us to do things such as operate our pick-up/delivery truck, hire local businesses to provide building maintenance, pay our utility bills, and all the other background costs that come along with operating a non-profit organization.
Contributions to our organization's general fund essentially grants us the ability to focus on and prioritize the individuals and families we serve.
