Your donations help us continue our promise of supporting education and other local outreach organizations!

This past year, we were able to contribute over $100,000 to local Catholic Schools through your donations of gently used items such as clothing, furniture, appliances and housewares. Your tax-deductible contributions are sold through our ONE location and bring joy to “Thrifters” in search of a great deal. Proceeds from the sale of donated items help fund Catholic Schools in Lee County. Donations that are not sold are provided to other organizations like Lifeline Pregnancy Center, Jesus the Worker Parish in Fort Myers and individuals in need. See a list of all the organizations we help here.

When donating clothes and household items at our location off US 41 – click here for directions – upon request you will be immediately provided with a tax receipt of your donation for your records. Please check with your tax professional for assistance in the valuation of your donated items to ensure they meet with IRS guidelines.
