Thrift Shops

Thrift ShopBy shopping, donating or volunteering at a Bethesda Thrift Shop or Donation Center, you help support the people Bethesda serves. The income generated by our thrift shops helps provide funding for our mission. 100 percent of the net profits from the shops goes directly to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Annually, the shops have provided $1.2 million in revenue that helped pay for beyond-the-budget services such as Christian education and spiritual nurture, custom-built wheelchairs, and personal supplies for the men, women and children supported by Bethesda.

All of the Bethesda Thrift Shops are closed on: New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

Volunteering

Bethesda's Thrift Shops are staffed by volunteers. The shops are a wonderful blessing not only to the people Bethesda serves, but also to the volunteers who report their feelings of being valued and needed. Many volunteers talk of making new Christian friends and of being a service to their communities through recycling and giving excess donations to needy families and mission.
