A Different Way to Give: Atlanta Mission Thrift Stores

Without the help of generous people like you, Atlanta Mission wouldn’t be able to touch the lives of as many men, women, and children that we do every year. There are many ways to give and offer help and support outside of monetary donations. One unique way to help those who need it the most is by shopping at one of our Atlanta Mission Thrift Stores!

Atlanta Mission’s thrift stores provide significant funding for the programs that help change the lives of thousands of men, women, and children every year. Our thrift stores thrive on donations from generous people within the Athens, Commerce, Gainesville, Marietta, and Winder communities. 

About our Atlanta Mission Thrift Stores

Our thrift stores go beyond the city of Atlanta with 5 locations around Georgia – Athens, Commerce, Gainesville, Marietta, and Winder. This allows us to reach people in other communities.

At our stores, we gladly accept gently used and new items. From furniture to clothes to electronics, we’d love to help rehome all of your beloved belongings! If you have some large, bulkier items you’d like to donate, we also offer free pickups for people within the communities we serve. To schedule your pickup, click here or call 404-367-2289.

Our thrift stores are 501(c)(3) organizations, and all donations are tax-deductible. Receipts are available at each thrift store location for donations.

How it Helps

When you shop at one of our Atlanta Mission Thrift Stores, everybody wins. Here are just a few things that your thrift store donation does:

  1. Helps fund our programs: The proceeds from our thrift stores help fund all of our programs including vocational training, transitional housing, spiritual recovery, and addiction recovery.
  2. On-the-job training: Our thrift stores provide the perfect place for our clients to practice the skills they’ve learned through our programs in a real-life on-the-job scenario. This helps bring them just one step closer to gaining the independence they deserve.
  3. Provides food for our clients: Every purchase you make at one of our thrift stores could help provide a healthy, warm meal for a woman, man, or child in need.  
  4. Gives those facing homelessness hope: For our clients, getting back on their feet is a walk, not a sprint. When you shop at our thrift stores, you’re not only directly providing them with food, shelter, or transitional housing, you’re providing them with the thing that they need the most – hope. 


You can never go wrong with a good thrift store find. And when you couple that with being able to help those in need, it’s a win-win for everybody! To make a donation, stop by any of our thrift store locations.
