Thrift Store and Furniture Warehouse
The people of the Wilbur section and the East Ward of Trenton need help with other necessities of life besides housing. In 1989, Father Brian McCormick and neighborhood people established the Clothing Store (now called the Thrift Store) and the Furniture/Appliance Warehouse.
Used clothing, furniture, and appliances are donated by people and organizations from all over the Trenton area. Items are sold at a minimal cost or given away in certain circumstances. Some of the items are used for clients at BCHT's sister organization, Doorway to Hope Emergency Housing (see tab below).
Dedicated volunteers from the Wilbur neighborhood organize and display the items and run the store.
Want to donate items to the store?
We accept clean, gently used clothing and certain furniture and appliances in good condition. Call the number below for information on donations and pick-ups.
Saturdays: Yard Sale, weather permitting
Mondays: Bag O' Clothes - qualified people holding a voucher from a social service agency may collect a bag of clothes for free, by appointment. Discounts may also apply for other individuals.
