What is the Unity House Thrift Store?

ReStyle offers new and used clothing and a variety of household items at affordable prices. The store offers clothes, shoes and accesories by acting as a “broker” among people who have items to donate and people who have a need for those items.

How do I donate?

Please call ahead to (518) 274-2607 to speak with our Community Resources program to make sure the item you are donating is one we can use. Accepted donations can be brought to 2431 Sixth Avenue on weekdays during the hours of 9-3pm. If you need to arrange a different time, please call for more information. We cannot accept donations on weekends. Unfortunately, Unity House does not have the resources to pick up donations.
