Donation Information


Why Donate?

Second-hand shops are good for the world.  By reducing the need for the manufacture of new items, resources like electricity and water are preserved.  Donating to second-hand shops like Boysville Auxiliary Thrift Store keeps millions of pounds of usable items out of landfills and helps support children in crisis.
