Our Western Hills Thrift Store reopens Tuesday, May 12, and our other stores reopen Friday, May 15. Donations can be made at those stores starting on those dates.
For everyone's benefit, new safety procedures are being implemented for those visiting our thrift stores. For the safety of others, we encourage you to wear a mask while inside the store, and maintain appropriate social distancing both in the aisles and in line for the registers. If you are not feeling well, we ask that you please stay home and shop another day.
Pick-up service of donations is also resuming on Tuesday, May 12. Call 513-421-CARE to schedule a pick-up time.
Our drivers are only making curbside/driveway pick-ups. They are no longer going inside a home to collect furniture and other donations.
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!
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
What's my stuff worth?
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. Not sure what to value your donation?
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).
