FAQs

General

Whom does the We Care Thrift Store Support?

We Care Thrift Stores are owned by and operate as a vital part of the ministry of We Care Program (link to wecareprogram.org?), generating funds for the purpose of ministering to incarcerated men and women in correctional facilities.  Donations of clothing and miscellaneous items are delivered to the stores by the surrounding communities. They are then sorted, processed, and sold. After expenses, one hundred percent of the net proceeds goes directly toward the support of We Care’s prison chaplaincy services.

Do you offer estate or large item pickup services?

Yes. We provide free pick up in the local area for items that are too large or too heavy to fit into your car. We only ask that the items are accessible for the men coming to pick them up. To schedule a pick up, please call 251-368-8818 or click here to send us a pick-up request.

Do you offer a tax receipt for my donations?

Your merchandise donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law. We will provide a tax receipt upon your request.

How should I prepare my donations?

We ask that you place clothing, bed linens, and table linens in large plastic bags. Please place your other donations in boxes that have lids or are able to be closed. This enables your donated items to stay clean, dry, and secure on our trucks and in our warehouses. Please wrap/secure all cords to lamps and small appliances. All items that are too large to fit in a box will be properly secured in our trucks by our truck crews.
