Shop. Donate. Volunteer.
Hillcrest is proud to operate the best thrift stores in the Kansas City area. Our shops are supported by thousands of volunteers annually and are stocked daily only with donated items from our friends & supporters in the community.
Proceeds from the thrift stores support the operations of the Hillcrest Transitional Housing program. They’ve allowed us to expand our transitional housing program to new communities! To volunteer, donate, or schedule a pick-up of your gently loved items, please contact a member of your local Hillcrest Thrift Store staff.
COVID-19 Update: Both thrift stores are open! As you gear up to visit us again, you’ll see some processes have been changed and improved. Please note the following before heading in to shop or donate:
** As our community continues to wrestle with COVID-19, Hillcrest Thrift Store will keep step with the most recent mandates. In accordance with local health departments, shoppers will be required to wear face masks beginning Wednesday, July 1. Masks should cover both your mouth and nose. Exceptions are for those under the age of five and for anyone with a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask. **
