Community Palliative Care Thrift Shops
To help cover the cost of
operating our palliative care residences, we have opened two Thrift Shops.
One is located in
the basement of our first palliative care residence, and the second is in down town
Charlotte. Our newest Thrift Shop, in down town
Charlotte, has mainly furniture, home improvement items, and
Everything is priced reasonably.
We have a wide variety of items from household furniture,
exercise equipment, patio furniture,
microwaves, clothing, books, kitchen appliances, etc. So stop by
to browse our large selection of items.
THRIFT STORE DONATION GUIDELINES
Making Your Donations Go Further
We greatly appreciate your contributions! Each donation helps us care for terminally ill patients and their families. By following a few easy guidelines you can make your donation go further to benefit Eaton Community Palliative Care.
Questioning your Donation? Check with us before
donating. We are happy to discuss what you have to donate and decide if it matches our needs.
In general, all donated items should be
gently used, clean, and in working condition.
Clothing should be washed or dry-cleaned. Remove lint and pet hair, fold neatly, and place in bags or boxes.
Furniture must be in good condition. It must be structurally sound and have no stains, rips or holes.
Electrical items, sports, medical and exercise equipment, and children’s goods should all be examined carefully and tested before donating.
The Consumers’ Product Safety Commission is a good place to check on product safety issues. Some items may be unsafe to reuse (for example: a toy that has been recalled, a damaged bike helmet, or wood painted with lead based paint).
If your donation is
electronics, small appliances, or battery-operated items make sure they work. We do not have volunteers available to repair these items. If you donate a broken item, it can be expensive for us to properly dispose of it.
When unusable or hazardous goods are donated to the Eaton Community Thrift Shop the cost for proper disposal of these items reduces funds that could otherwise support our efforts in caring for patients and their families.
NOT accepted: Upright pianos, organs, non-working appliances, console stereos, TVs (some exceptions are made for the new flat screen TVs) wet or soiled clothing, soiled, ripped or torn upholstery furniture or bedding, particleboard/pressed wood/chipboard furniture including entertainment centers, outdated playpens/cribs or child safety seats, computers, printers, fax machines.
