The Rescue Mission Thrift Store seeks with God’s help to serve our community by providing an affordable alternative or a supplement to regular retail shopping as well as a source of free clothing for families in need. Recycling usable goods, and helping preserve our environment are two of the ways the Thrift Store attempts to be good stewards.

When you shop at the Thrift Store, you’ll find “a little bit of this and a whole lot of that.”

Daily you will find great bargains on clothing of all styles and sizes, furniture, linens, dishes, lamps, household and kitchen items, books, jewelry, toys, etc. All purchases made at the Thrift Store help provide services for homeless families at the Rescue Mission.

The Thrift Store operates solely on donations. If you are cleaning out your closets, think of the Rescue Mission! If your store or business has returns or items you would like to donate, we can use those, too. If you have usable items at home or at work that you can no longer use, let us know!

Not only do proceeds from the sales of donated goods provide shelter, food, medical care, recovery program and educational classes, thanks to your generosity each year the Mission helps families in need through support and cooperation with Interfaith hospitality, Good Shepard house, & Salvation army.

Rescue Mission Thrift Shops offer the best deals in town on “gently used” donated clothing, sports equipment, furniture, and other household items. Come by for a bargain, and help the Mission reach out to the homeless in & around the Cape fear region.

If you prefer to deliver the items to us, donations to the Rescue Mission are gratefully accepted at the following location: 502 Castle st., WILMINGTON, NC Downtown at the corner of 5th & Castle st.


We can turn your surplus or gently-used donated items into hope for our homeless clients!

Donate items you no longer need to the Mission. Our clients will then put them to good use, or we will sell them at our thrift store to raise money for our life-saving programs. You’ll also be helping local neighbors who rely on our thrift stores to make ends meet. A win-win for everyone!

Items always needed are:

  • New and gently used clothing for our residents and thrift store
  • Furniture, house wares, small appliances and other household items in good condition
  • Working electronics
  • Bibles and devotional materials for the men and women in our programs
