The St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores and Donation Centers are a source of hope for those who cannot purchase basic necessities or need to shop on a budget. Without donations of gently-used furniture, clothing and household items, a mother would not receive pots and pans to cook for her family, a child would still be sleeping on a hard, cold floor, or a father would not have a suit to wear to a job interview.
The items that you no longer have use for could give a local family hope for their future. To donate call (513) 421-CARE (2273) for a free pick-up or drop off items at any of our seven locations across Cincinnati. You can also donate items at any of our more than 30 convenient donation boxes.
Not sure what to donate? Here's a list of basic items:
- clean, usable furniture
- household items
- small appliances
- household decorations
- kitchen utensils
- paper goods
- sporting goods, bikes & toys
- shoes: men's and children's especially needed
- books, records, DVDs, CDs
- dishes, pots and pans
- non-perishable food items
- personal hygiene items
- sheets & blankets
- baby products
Want to hold a Clothing and Household Items Drive?
You can schedule a St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store truck to pick-up the items left after a garage sale and even after holding your own clothing/household items drive! Your office, parish, or special event is the perfect opportunity to host a drive and give back to neighbors in need. To schedule a FREE pick-up of items call (513) 421-CARE (2273).

If you have any additional questions about hosting a drive, please contact Drives Coordinator, Casey Smith, at (513) 562-8841 ext. 013 or CSmith@svdpcincinnati.org.
Because donated items sold through the seven St. Vincent de Paul Cincinnati Thrift Stores help fund social services for your neighbors in need, your donations may be tax deductible.

All thrift store and donation center proceeds support our programs such as our food pantries, Charitable Pharmacy and homelessness prevention program. So, whether you're shopping or donating, you're helping neighbors in need!
