The Fair Tide thrift store provides critical funding for the Fair Tide mission to house and support homeless households. All store proceeds benefit Fair Tide’s transitional housing program. The thrift store also acts as a resource for our housing program residents and other members of the community in need of quality housewares and clothing at an affordable price.

At our discretion, we accept electronics and toys. As a general rule, we cannot accept the following:

  • mattresses
  • box springs
  • computers and monitors
  • TVs
  • building materials
  • large appliances
  • flammable liquids
  • humidifiers, dehumidifiers
  • large stereo speakers
  • metal desks
  • air conditioners
  • exercise equipment
  • anything that has been recalled or deemed hazardous by the Consumer Product Safety Commission

When you make a purchase or donate an item to the Fair Tide thrift store, you are helping to further the Fair Tide mission to a support those who are less fortunate and homeless in our community.

Like many non-profit organizations, we could not survive without our generous donor and volunteer base.  When we work together, a healthier community is the result.
