BACK TO TOP

Agrace’s three thrift stores are resale shops located in southern Wisconsin that provide quality apparel and home furnishings at a fair price. Proceeds from the stores help support services offered by Agrace Hospice & Palliative Care, a nonprofit, community-based health care agency.

A Place to Donate, Shop & Volunteer

The Agrace thrift stores sell quality merchandise donated by the community. The dollars generated help fund essential Agrace programs, such as Care for All (free or discounted care for patients who qualify), specialized staff education and grief support groups that are open to anyone who needs them.

The stores:

  • give people in the community a place to donate unneeded possessions, receive tax benefits and support a charitable cause;
  • provide a meaningful volunteer experience that includes training, recognition and the chance to work alongside other dedicated volunteers;
  • offer shoppers good values and an exceptional thrift shopping experience—with clean, bright stores and quality gently used merchandise; and
  • build awareness of Agrace’s supportive services for people facing serious and life-limiting illnesses.

WE COME TO YOU!

Parting with household items can be challenging—especially when it’s due to a life change or the death of a loved one. Thankfully, Agrace Thrift Store’s experts can make sorting, packing and donating easier and less stressful. Whether you’re downsizing, redecorating, closing an estate or just simplifying your life—we’re here to help.

Pack-up/Pick-up for estate or downsizing donors

We will pack donations we can accept and transport them to Agrace Thrift Stores—so you never need to lift a box. We also offer resources to help you “rehome” items we cannot accept. You’ll get a donation receipt for tax purposes. This service requires a minimum value of $500 (thrift prices) and a 15-day advanced notice.

Furniture Pick-up

We will schedule an appointment to pick up furniture you would like to donate. You’ll get a donation receipt for tax purposes. This service requires a minimum value of $500 (thrift prices).

Services are offered in the Madison area only. Please call us to schedule an in-home consultation to review your potential donations.

Prospective volunteers complete a phone interview process, submit an application, and attend an orientation to learn more about Agrace and the important ways in which volunteers contribute to our mission. Call today for more information!

There are lots of ways to help!
  • Operate the cash register: Greet customers, operate the cash register, answer the phone and assist customers.
  • Sort new donations: Assist donors with incoming donations; sort donations and prepare them for pricing.
  • Price donations: Sort, clean and price merchandise, such as housewares, kitchen-ware, glassware, home décor, clothing, bedding, quilts, tablecloths and towels.
  • Price collectibles and vintage items: Use the Internet to research and price the more valuable and collectible donations we receive.

Volunteers commit to four-hour shifts:
Monday – Saturday: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Sunday: noon – 4 p.m.
Or an evening shift  Monday – Thursday: 4:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.

We ask for a once-a-week commitment for shifts on Monday through Friday. Or volunteer for a shift every other weekend. We accept and welcome time-off requests. A commitment of at least six months is appreciated. Many volunteers have been with us for six years or more, which shows how much they enjoy their roles.
