Running our store is a labor intensive process.  We have over one hundred volunteers who graciously give their time to the operation of the thrift shop.  But that is still not enough.  There are times when we must close our donation drop off area due to lack of staff. We need volunteers to greet our donors their car and unload donations as well as assist the loading of purchases.  We are in great need of cashiers and assistants to bag and wrap breakables. 

We process hundreds maybe thousands of pieces of clothing and miscellaneous items daily.  We could use your help to inspect and process these items.  Do you love artwork?  We would love to have your help pricing our paintings and prints.  Whatever your skills or areas of expertise, we have a job for you.

Help us help others.  If you can give 3 or 4 hours one day a week or more we would love to have you as part of our team.  Your efforts are appreciated and will be rewarded by the knowledge that you are helping your community.  Won’t you join us today?  Contact Mary Ann, our volunteer coordinator, at or stop in Mon -Fri 10-2. 

Put your experience to work by joining our group of volunteers. De-clutter your home by donating your unused clothing and household items.

Help Us Out!

New Life Thrift Shop accepts drive through donations at the back door.  You can drop off your gently used clothing, furniture, kitchen wares, appliances, bedding, anything including the kitchen sink.  We simply ask that its condition is suitable for re-sale.  Unsaleable items cost us needed money to pay landfill fees.  We accept new and used mattresses and box springs as well.  We have a permit from the state that requires us to spray and tag these items for resale.  We will also accept your old analog televisions for a donation of $10.00 to cover our handling costs.

Items too large for your car?  If you are unable to bring your donation to us we can schedule a pick-up for you.  We send our truck out on Tuesday and Thursday.  Just call 302-644-0171 about a week in advance.  Just large items please.  If it fits in your car please bring it to us.  We need to reserve space on the truck for large items only.
