How do I donate?

If you want to donate an item to Thrift Story, please stop by one of our drop-off sessions or email us to schedule a pick-up. Submissions will NOT be accepted the day of the event.  

Donations are limited to clothing and small items. All donations must be in good condition. Stories must be hand-written on index cards. 

We ask that all stories be true, as remembered by the storyteller, but encourage all to get creative (for example, you could tell the story from the perspective of the item you're donating)!  We do ask that you don't include your name on the card, but you can include your age and/or your current city.

If you would like to hold a drop-off session in your community (or volunteer in some other capacity) please contact us.
