VGH Thrift Store volunteers make all the difference. You can too. VGH Thrift Store reopens August 4

On Tuesday, August 4, the VGH Thrift Store is back in business.

The store has relocated to a bright, newly renovated space with plenty of free parking in the back for shoppers, donation drop-offs and volunteers. The new location on E. Hastings Street is favourably situated in the East Village, one of Vancouver’s hottest up-and-coming neighbourhoods.

Your donations welcome

Getting ready for opening day: Donations are always welcome.

The VGH Thrift Store has free parking in the back, making donation drop-offs easier than ever. The store’s volunteers welcome your previously loved:

clothing, jewellery and accessories
books and multimedia
housewares (kitchenware, small appliances, vintage curios and artwork)
sports equipment
All net proceeds — that’s right, 100 per cent! — go to benefitting our patients, clients and residents within the Vancouver Community of Care.

Volunteers wanted

Many thanks to all the volunteers who sweated it out during the hottest week in July to pack and prepare for the move. The VGH Thrift Store wouldn’t be such a success without its volunteers.

The store is seeking more helping hands. If you or someone you know would like to volunteer with the VGH Thrift Store, contact:
