Frequently Asked Questions
Donations are accepted at the rear of the store. There is a covered drive-thru for your convenience. You can enter the drive-thru from the 20th Street side of the parking lot and a donation attendant will be there to assist you.
We accept donations from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at the store. Please do not leave donations on the curb after hours. They are regularly vandalized before we arrive the next morning.
We accept any items we can resell in the store. Our largest departments are clothing and household goods. We also have furniture, collectibles and antiques, sporting goods and fitness equipment, linens, jewelry and accessories, books and media, seasonal items, and a “man cave.” There are a variety of things we are unable to accept because we cannot resell them.
All proceeds from sales at the Thrift Store benefit the ongoing programs of Rockford Rescue Mission. In addition to serving nearly 400 meals daily to anyone in need, the Mission has short-term crisis and long-term Life Recovery Programs for both men and women, as well as educational and vocational training programs. Because of this, your donation is tax-deductible. Beyond the good cause you’re supporting, donating to Thrift Store helps you get things out of your home that you no longer want or need, while helping keep those things out of the landfill. And folks who shop at Thrift Store are often able to get things they would not be able to find or afford otherwise.
Gifts-in-kind given to the Thrift Store are considered charitable donations. We have a form to keep for your tax records. We will usually ask you if you want a receipt, and feel free to ask us for one if you need it.
