The Caring Place relies on the generosity of the community for the “inventory” in our thrift store, your donation matters!
For over 30 years, the thrift store at The Caring Place has served as a successful, ongoing fundraising project for the organization. The thrift shop has grown and is now The Shops at The Caring Place generating approximately 67% of our total revenue ensuring that every dollar donated goes directly to our needy families and that we will be here in the days, months and years ahead.
An efficient team of Caring Place volunteers and employees specialize in turning donations of gently-used, unwanted items from the community into sought-after treasurers. Our volunteers accept donations from an average of over 100 cars per day.
Donations may be dropped off at our donations receiving area Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (please enter through the south gate). Click for Directions
