Sister Carmen Community Center Thrift Store


The Thrift Store is accepting limited donations Tuesdays – Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Due to limited capacity, we are only able to accept a maximum number of items from each donor. We will accept donations on a first come, first serve basis until we are at capacity. You may bring up to:

  • 2 large trash bags of soft items (clothing, linens), and
  • 1 box of hard goods (household goods, kitchen).

The Thrift Store is open for shopping Tuesdays – Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

We will only allow up to 15 shoppers in the store at one time. If we are at capacity we will ask customers to wait outdoors in a socially distanced line until another shopper leaves. We ask that all shoppers maintain a safe distance of 6 feet from all other individuals.

We are no longer requiring temperature checks at the store, but we ask that unvaccinated shoppers ages 2 and up wear a mask. Children must remain with their parent at all times.

Unfortunately, as we reopen the store with only limited access, we will not be able to offer special discounts or coupons.

Thank you for your support and happy shopping!
