Donate Items, Shop, or Volunteer. Learn more about how you can contribute to The Village Centers through our resale shop, where 100% of the proceeds go directly toward supporting programs and services for individuals with IDD.
The Village Thrift Shop is a resale shop that benefits the mission of The Village Centers by providing additional revenue from sales and by serving as a vocational training site for our Villagers and for other organizations. 100% of the proceeds from the Thrift Shop go directly toward supporting our programs and services. Our Villagers and individuals with IDD affiliated with partner organizations train or work in the thrift shop under the supervision of a job coach sorting clothes and items, unloading donated items, cleaning, and other important tasks.
If you are cleaning or reorganizing and would like to support a local community organization, donate your gently used clothing, toys, household items, appliances, furniture to The Village Thrift any time throughout the year. Please review the below list of what we will and will not accept. Donations may be dropped off on the side of the store, or we can arrange to pick up your donations, including furniture. Please call our main office or email Ben McLean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
