Thrift Shop

Hearts for the Homeless® desires to improve the quality of life for the people in Buffalo and to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Hearts for the Homeless Thrift Store

Our thrift store, Hearts Thrift Shop, located on Tonawanda Street in Buffalo, helps us meet our goal to provide quality clothing, accessories, shoes, and household items at affordable prices. Hearts Thrift Shop meets the needs in an impoverished area of our city where many people do not have transportation to suburban malls.

After expenses, all proceeds from Hearts Thrift Shop are used to support the operation of our mobile soup kitchen and meet some of the needs of families in the local community.

You can help by donating your gently used clothing, accessories, linens, and small household items, in good condition. Donated items can be dropped off at our ministry center at 890 Tonawanda Street in Riverside, Monday-Saturday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, or at one of our 400+ donation bins.

Thank you in advance for donating items to help support our outreach efforts. Remember, you can also support our mobile soup kitchen by shopping for bargains at Hearts Thrift Shop.

What folks are saying about us:

    review rating 5  The services that these people are doing are just amazing. Not only do they sell donated clothes for super cheap, they also will give out clothes (primarily for men) for free if you ask them to. On top of that, when asked if they take food donations they said that they have a kitchen that they make and source food out of to a soup kitchen. Just a wonderful establishment Buffalo should be proud of housing.
