The Community Care Closet – The Little Thrift Store with a Big Heart

297 Main St. Deseronto

Tuesday to Saturday 10:00am to 4:00pm

In operation under Community Care for South Hastings since 2006, this Thrift Store has happily served its patrons with personable volunteers and smashing good prices. Customers who shop with us enjoy our wonderful displays, spacious aisles and find great deals on gently used clothing and household items. Bidding opportunities are also available on our more unique donations during our exciting silent auctions.

Are you looking for a great place to volunteer? We offer flexible working hours and different opportunities at the thrift store. We have two shifts during the day 10:00 to 1:00 and 1:00 to 4:00 (or you can work all day). Duties can include opening and closing, keeping the store’s appearance neat and tidy, assisting customers with their purchases and making change. There are also sorting opportunities for folks who prefer to work in the background organizing, then this is a great position for you.

Have a donation for us? We gladly accept clothing of all kinds and seasons in great condition. If you would wear it again, then please feel free to donate it to us. Unfortunately any clothing that is ripped, stained, missing buttons, has broken zippers or is faded or worn looking will be discarded. We try to recycle where we can and repurpose if possible to avoid sending items to landfill as we do have to buy garbage bag tags for every bag we throw away.

We can now accept small furniture items such as end tables, foot stools, small chairs, rocking chairs, baskets, floor lamps, bar stools etc. We also gladly accept small household items, knickknacks, pictures, frames, jewelry, books, puzzles, DVD, CD, children’s toys, kitchen ware, lamps, pillows, blankets, sheets, plastic shopping bags, recycled shopping bags, garbage bag tags and any office supplies like tape, paper, pens and pencils. All donations are accepted at our new location or at the office at 293 Main St. Our office hours are Mon – Fri 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. (closed at lunch). Lisa and Julie will be glad to assist you when you arrive.
