The Hospice Thrift Store



Carolina Caring maintains an abiding pledge never to turn away anyone in need of hospice care. The Hospice Thrift Store honors this pledge by raising funds to support uninsured and under-insured patients by giving them the care they deserve at the end of life.

While HTS is most visibly a retailer that sells new and gently used furniture, clothing, housewares, accessories, books, and jewelry, the store also helps families settle estates. We accept items that are no longer wanted and can even remove large pieces at no charge via a scheduled pick-up.

If a donation is deemed unsaleable because of condition, performance, or age, HTS recycles it appropriately and directs the proceeds back to hospice programs and services.

In addition, The Hospice Thrift Store partners with local manufacturers, shipping companies, and retailers. If they have merchandise overruns, discontinuations, or flaws, they often reach out to us and donate the goods for HTS to sell. The savings available to shoppers are substantial.

Any time you frequent the Hospice Thrift Store, make a donation of money or goods, or share news of our care in the community, you further the work that Carolina Caring does and ensure that hospice care is available to all.

If you would like to donate items to the Hospice Thrift Store as an individual or a company, please call 828.267.9894.
