Give to a Thrift Store

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 a use for could give a local family hope for their future. All thrift store and donation center proceeds support our programs like our food pantries, Charitable Pharmacy and homelessness prevention program. So, whether you're shopping or donating, you're helping neighbors in need! 

To schedule a pick-up of donated items please call: (513) 421-CARE (2273)

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.

  • clothing
