We rely on the generosity of individuals, businesses, and community donation drives to fill the shelves of our 12 Thrift Stores. Donated items are sold to members of the community or given away for free to people experiencing crisis. Items that cannot be sold in our stores are recycled. 

All of our Thrift Store locations accept donations during their normal business hours. Donations can also be made at our Chamblee Donation Center (2050-C Chamblee Tucker Road, Atlanta 30341) or any of our donation bins
