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!
Donating Items to the Durham Rescue Mission
The Durham Rescue Mission welcomes donations at our thrift stores in Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill, as well as our additional drop-off locations at the Men’s Campus and Good Samaritan Inn (Women’s & Children’s Division).
Donations are tax deductible and all proceeds will go to benefit the Durham Rescue Mission’s ministry of helping the hungry and homeless of the Triangle area. If you are interested in scheduling a pick-up time for larger items, please call 919-401-1935 or
Tax-Deductible Donation Items
- CDs, DVDs & VHS

- And much more!
Washing machines, dryers, refrigerators and stoves (excluding gas) are accepted at our thrift store locations in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. Large furniture items can only be accepted at our three store locations — not our drop-off locations.
We are a trusted seller on Amazon! You can purchase books, audio CDs, video and computer games, and more! We strive for the highest standard of customer service. And just like when you shop at our Thrift Stores all proceeds benefit those in need at the Durham Rescue Mission.
