Transforming donated goods into:
- Good environmental stewardship
When you donate your new and gently-used items to Family Pathways Thrift Stores, we turn them into sustainable funding that supports Family Pathways’ essential services that strengthen our communities through equitable access to healthy foods, safety, housing, economic security and social connectedness.
Family Pathways Thrift Stores relies on generous donations from the local community to collect used clothing and household items. Each year, more 3 million pounds of product is sold or recycled, providing even more funding for essential services and reduce the amount of waste to our environment.
In order to minimize our donation processing costs to allow more funding for our community programs, we do ask that you:
- All non-clothing donations should be packed in a box or tote with a lid. All clothing donations should be packed in a sturdy bag or box that can be closed.
- Each bag, box or individual item may not exceed 40 lbs.

- Appointments are required for large donations, such as furniture or trailer-loads that require more than one person to unload.
