Community Thrift Store SF Partnership

Got stuff to get rid of?

We are proud to announce that this month Care Association has entered a partnership with Community Thrift Store at 623 Valencia Street, San Francisco. Bring your salable stuff to the store any day of the week from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Drop it off at the loading dock on Sycamore Street and tell them it’s for Care Association. Donating it on our behalf will help us help people find affordable housing.

The store takes anything that sells and fits in their store such as (copied from their site):

  • Clean, gently used adult clothing and shoes
  • Jewelry and Accessories
  • Art and Collectibles
  • Household Furniture
  • Housewares
  • Movies and Music
  • Electronics
  • Books

A longer list of unacceptable items is on the store’s website.

Who Benefits

From the store’s proceeds, both the store and partners benefit. By telling Community Thrift that you want to support Care Association, a sticker with a number for our charity goes on the items donated.

After making a trip to the donations dock, you can reward yourself by visiting the store for a thrifty treasure. In the midst of my KonMari-method tidying, I went to the store and found small boxes and dishes to organize what’s left.

KonMari organizing utilizes small containers and boxes. I found the ceramic dishes at the Community Thrift Shop in San Francisco for about $1 each. The wooden organizer was $2.

How Your Donation will Help

Community Thrift Store is a valuable resource for about 200 local charities. It goes without saying that real estate is expensive, and most local charities are not Goodwill, Salvation Army, or a church. Your donation will help keep the store’s operations going so that us property-less charities have a thrift shop to call our own.

Your donation will also help Care Association get a little closer to our vision of matching vacant units and rooms to tenants. We are also working on a plan to develop affordable housing. Still other plans are on the horizon. The faster we can raise the funds we need, the faster we can implement care not only in the Bay Area but also around the rest of the U.S.A.

We are starting in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is another reason why donating to Community Thrift means something. Rest assured that whatever money we receive through the store will go toward benefiting the Bay Area.

Thank you for your support!
