More than a thrift shop

Staffed almost entirely by volunteers and stocked with carefully selected donated items, the Family Treasures Thrift Shop is a community effort. Purchasing from and donating to the Family Treasures Thrift Shop is more than a transaction.  The blouse you donate today could change a life! 

All of our profits go toward helping Children's Home Society of Florida create stronger families and brighter futures for children throughout Mid-Florida. Our store provides needed items to our clients at no cost to them. By supporting the Family Treasures Thrift Shop, you're a part of that effort! Together, we've built a place where everyone can find great deals and join Children's Home Society of Florida in our mission of Building bridges to successful futures for children.

Have items to donate?

We would love to have you donate to the Family Treasures Thrift Shop! Please feel free to drop off your donation at our Thrift Shop during store hours.  We accept all kinds of items in gently used and working condition, from clothes for all ages to appliances!

Donating furniture?

Family Treasures Thrift Shop offers free furniture pick ups.  To schedule your pick up, please call us at: (352) 393-2826. When you call, we'll ask you a few questions about your donation to help prepare our movers. Please understand that we do not accept items with tears, stains or severe fading because it's difficult to sell a damaged donation. 

Volunteer

Our shop is ideal for volunteers of all ages, from high school students seeking community service hours to retired citizens looking to give back. We have opportunities for individuals and groups year-round.

Our volunteers gain great customer service and retail skills. They help sort and process donations, greet customers, operate the cash register and make sure the store is in tip-top shape! In addition, you'll have the chance to work closely with store management to develop successful marketing plans for our year round clothing and furniture drives.

Volunteers also have the opportunity to be part of our mission to stop child abuse and neglect while receiving an exclusive discount on store items (dependent on the number of hours served). You can also help "shop" for clients, whether it's finding the perfect back-to-school outfit for a third-grader or picking out books a family can read together.
