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.
We have suspended furniture donation pickups until further notice; however, we will accept furniture drop offs during Donation Center operating hours. (Excludes 5/22/2020 and 5/29/2020)
