What’s my stuff worth?

Sales from our eight thrift stores help fund our social services and outreach programs, expanding our capacity to extend relief to tens of thousands of Greater Cincinnati neighbors. Each year, we also distribute over $500,000 worth of no-cost clothing, furniture and basic housewares directly to neighbors in need through our thrift stores.

We are tremendously grateful for everyone who supports our mission by donating their gently-used furniture, housewares, clothing and other basic goods to St. Vincent de Paul. Not only are you making a difference, but your donations may be tax-deductible. Not sure what to value your donation?

Valuation Guide

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 questions about items to donate to the Thrift Stores, please call 513-421-CARE (2273).
