The Salvation Army Thrift Store gratefully accepts donations of clothing, electronics, vintage, and all of the other kinds of items. Once received, donated items are sorted and reviewed by their production teams to give them a chance of a second life through retail and recycling. Saleable items make their way to the sales floor to be sold as Fab Finds at affordable prices to help raise funds for local Salvation Army’s programs and services. Items not sold in the store are transformed by local recyclers like Up Pet into new items and by others into limitless possibilities. By shopping and donating at The Salvation Army Thrift Store, you support The Salvation Army's programs, services, and emergency services beyond increasing our support into a new sustainable solution for unsold items with creative partners.
