Our Thrift Store is filled with items donated by the supporters of our non-profit members. Donations can be dropped off, or we offer a pick-up service for larger items like furniture and appliances. Upon receipt, the donations are barcoded to the designated non-profit which then sends a thank you letter to the donor to be used for tax deduction purposes. The Donor assigns their own value to the donated items. When the donated items are sold, 12% of the sale price goes to the non-profit. We’ve issued checks to members in excess of $800 per month, which has helped fund their programs.
Our Furniture Bank is available on a referral basis and offers gently used beds, dressers, tables & chairs, and sofas for a nominal administrative fee. We are helping a wide range of people in need including homeless people who are transitioning to permanent housing, people starting over following the loss of household items due to a variety of reasons, people with disabilities, veterans, and seniors.
Helping Hands Community Thrift Store & Furniture Bank is privately funded. We act as “brokers” for our non-profit members. We hire from the community and have created job training positions for individuals with disabilities. We are truly trying to make a positive difference in the community.
