The Thrift Shop is a fundraiser for the no-fee programs of the Council. Your donations help fund Council programs and support your Needham neighbors. All are welcome [and encouraged] to shop with us.
We are asked all the time “what do you need? and “what type of donations are most useful”? We accept clothing and small household items in season and in good condition…Would you give it to your neighbor (in the light of day)? If yes, please donate it to us!
We cannot accept children’s clothing under 5 years, paint, mattresses or bed frames, large furniture or any appliances, TVs, or other electronic equipment [stereos, computers, printers, fax machines, etc.]. Books are best donated to the Needham Library. Click here for a list of other organizations that might be able to accept items we cannot.
Tax exempt slips are available inside our donation doorway. Donors are responsible for determining the value of their items for tax purposes. Click here for a list of estimated/suggested prices.
If you are unsure of something you wish to donate, please call us at 781-444-2415.
