FULTON, NY – Looking for a new home for your gently used household items, furniture, and appliances that you no longer need or use? Consider donating those items to the thrift shop at Catholic Charities of Oswego County.
Catholic Charities’ Thrift Shop provides families throughout Oswego County with an affordable option for clothing, household items, furniture, and even appliances when available.
“In these challenging times we are very much in need of donations for our thrift shop as the demand for clothing and household items is increasing,” said Helen Hoefer, supervisor of Community Services.
She added that Catholic Charities’ Thrift Shop is an important resource as it serves consumers in two ways.
“Our nominal fees provide families with an extremely affordable option and the money raised from sales in our Thrift Shop is used to buy food for our food pantry which is providing free food to an ever increasing amount of families in Oswego County. Donations to our Thrift Shop are always welcome so that we can continue to meet the increased need for both household items and food. We are currently in need of gently used furniture and other household items. I ask our community members to remember those less fortunate and consider donating unwanted items to Catholic Charities’ Thrift Shop. Your tax deductible donations of household items, furniture and appliances can make a real difference in someone’s life,” said Hoefer.
Put your unwanted items to good use and call Catholic Charities’ Thrift Shop today at 315-598-3980.
Arrangements will be made for pick-up of working appliances and furniture.
Catholic Charities’ Thrift Shop is open Mondays and Fridays from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
