How Are My Donations Used?

Donated items

Anything that you donate – including clothes, household items, hygiene supplies, and food – is made available for our community for free, with no conditions or judgment. We never sell donations.

Donated money

All the money that you donate to us goes to pay our building expenses like rent and utilities, and to buy the bulk supplies that we distribute each month. To be completely transparent, we put out a monthly overview showing how much money we received, how much we spent, and how we spent it, and you can see those here. Any donations are also tax-deductible since the Free Store is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.
