More than a thrift shop

Our Upscale Thrift Shop is a community-led effort — and every interaction is much more than a transaction. The blouse you donate today could change a life!

All  profits help create stronger families and brighter futures for kids. Plus, families we serve may shop at the store for free!

Together, we’ve built a place where everyone can find great deals and join us in our mission to build bridges to success for children.

Have items to donate?

Generous donations make this store possible! Please drop off your donation during store hours. We accept all kinds of items in gently used and working condition, from clothes to appliances!

Donating furniture?

We offer free furniture pick-ups. To schedule yours, please call (352) 393-2826.  We cannot accept items with tears, stains or severe fading.

Volunteer

Our shop is ideal for volunteers of all ages, from high schoolers to retirees. We have opportunities for individuals and groups year-round.

Our volunteers sort and process donations, greet customers, operate the cash register and make sure the store is in tip-top shape! Many volunteers also work closely with store management to develop successful marketing plans for our year-round clothing and furniture drives.

Volunteers may receive exclusive discounts on the shop’s 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.

Interested? Call (352) 334-0955 or email helpfloridachildren@chsfl.org.
