How to Host a Thrift Store Drive

Help Me Fine’s mission by gathering gently-used clothing and household items for our thrift store, Second Hope Shop.

Want to make a bigger impact? Coordinate a neighborhood drive by posting on social apps like NextDoor or your neighborhood email listserv. Thrift Drives are a great way to involve your work team, civic or religious group, and other groups of people. The Second Hope Shop team can even come pick up your group’s donation. (For pickup inquiries, please contact Second Hope Shop Manager, Mary Angel Bastin.)
