The BFA Family Thrift store is operated as a profit center for BFA. The store accepts items by donation that are gently used and still in good condition. This means after all expenses, wages, rent, utilities, insurance, etc are paid, net income from sales is delivered to BFA to support client programs. We have monthly sales on clothing as well as discounts for Senior Citizens and Military/Veterans.

Family Thrift normally accepts donations on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, from 9:30am – 4pm.  No appointment is necessary; however, if you have a particularly large donation, you may call ahead to let us know: 754-7322.  We accept items such as furniture, clothing, shoes, toys, games, housewares, and many other types of items, provided that they are in good, salable condition.  Please see one of our store associates in order to drop off a donation.  We can also pick up gently used furniture by appointment–please CONTACT US to schedule a pickup.

Important note:  Donations will not be accepted on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, unless you make arrangements with the store (not someone else) at least a day in advance.
