Your donations make a difference!
Your donations fund MCC programs both locally and globally!
If you’re like most people, then you have a lot of stuff…. Stuff that clutters your closets, your basement and maybe even a storage unit. When you’re ready to rid yourself of the burden of some of that stuff, we’ll be happy to take your clean, resalable items from you. We even have a a free furniture pick-up service to help with the items that you can’t manage yourself.
Since New Hamburg Thrift Centre is non-profit, we cannot buy anything to sell in our shop nor can we take anything on consignment. We rely strictly on the generosity of our donors.
PLEASE DO NOT leave donations after hours. We value what you’re donating and when donations are left in the elements, your donations are no longer useful and become waste.
We stress quality, clean, resalable items because we can’t sell household items with missing pieces or chipped or broken parts. All clothing and furniture items need to be free of stains, pet hair, and smoke. If you’re dropping off items which didn’t sell at your garage sale, please have the stickers removed and ensure that it’s something that is salable.
We also appreciate like things bagged together (footwear or clothing) and ask that you discard toys and games with missing pieces at home.
