Fringe Benefits Thrift Store

How to Donate

We appreciate your donations! Donations are accepted during regular store hours. Please bring all donations to the back of our building through the big red door. Your donations should be in a bag, box or container you do not need back. Staff are available to help you unload your donations if needed.  Sorry, we do not have a pick up or delivery service.

All donations are tax-deductible and upon donating we can provide you with a tax receipt to keep for your records. If you are unsure if your item is appropriate to donate please contact us, we're happy to discuss it with you! 

Going Green

Fringe Benefits utilizes many outlets to keep waste from making it to landfills. If we receive unsalable metal, cords, clothing, shoes and textiles we are able to recycle them and even receive funding in doing so. This funding supports our mission!



Drop off empty aluminum cans at Fringe Benefits Monday through Saturday from 10am-5pm. We will bring your cans to the recycler and use the profits to help animals in need through our Fringe Benefits Grant Program and Rudy's Fund. Please bring cans in a bag or cardboard box.
