You can help us stay open by being patient and following the rules.
1. Parking: You can park on Parsons St. or in the Pre-School lot (the one down the driveway off Milton Road)
2. Waiting: There will be no place to wait before we start selling at 10:00 a.m. - please stay in your cars until then.
3. New goods will continue to be brought out. We're getting less focused on this because it hasn't been crowded. Still, we plan to replenish as the tables get emptier.
4. Masks: Worn properly and social distancing required at all times, even though you are outside.
5. Selling Area: Our space, across from the High School, will be sectioned off. We reserve the right to limit the number of people at any one time, to protect everyone's safety. Thus far, crowding has never been an issue.
6. No one will be allowed in the building.

2020 Grant Awards Announced . . . See below
When are we open?
Thursdays from 10am to 1pm!
what to donate
The continued success of the Thrift Shop (staffed by volunteers) is based on our ability to constantly generate new donations which we sell and then donate the proceeds to local nonprofits. We hope that you will consider helping us increase our annual grants by donating items that you are no longer using. If you are “spring cleaning” or downsizing, please keep us in mind.
We love receiving: housewares, jewelry (real and costume), knick-knacks, artwork, toys, lamps, china, silver, crystal, children's books, and small furniture like tables, chairs. Strollers and bikes also sell very well,
Because of space constraints, we cannot accept: adult books, picture frames, clothing (except new), computers, large sports equipment, and televisions. We are also unable to sell safety equipment such as car seats and bike helmets. We do not accept VCR (VHS) tapes.
How to Donate
Bring donations to the Church, 882 Boston Post Road, and enter the door that is directly opposite and facing Rye High School. Once inside you will see a staircase and donations may be left at the bottom of the stairs in the hallway. We are happy to give you or mail you a receipt if you ask at the desk or leave a note at the desk with your name and address.
When to Donate
The church is open on weekdays from 9am to 5pm throughout the year. Summer (July & August) hours are 9am to 4pm.
We are happy to advise and help you decide what items you want to donate. In some cases, we may even be able to help with transportation. We encourage you to contact Cheryl Hunt (914-921-2634) or Suzanne Davies as you are considering your donations.
All proceeds go to local nonprofits
2020 Grant Awards - $53,000 given to local charities!
Because of the COVID-19 crisis, many of our grant recipients are in dire need of support NOW. The Women's Association decided to give out Thrift Shop Grants early with the money made before the pandemic hit. A huge thank-you to Suzanne Davies, who is keeping us all going, and to Debbie Zingg, Grant Committee chair, who pulled the Grant Committee together early.

PLEASE consider a donation of your own to these worthy organizations.
Thank You Very Much
