Visit Our Thrift Stores in the Durham-Raleigh-Chapel Hill Area

The mission of the Durham Rescue Mission Thrift Stores is to provide customers and donors with a rewarding experience by recycling gently-used items and helping to support the hungry and homeless at the Durham Rescue Mission. We strive to create jobs for the unemployed in the Triangle and offer opportunities for volunteers to become involved with our urban rescue mission in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.

Stop by one of our three convenient locations today to donate your items or shop for clothes, books, furniture and more!
