Thrift Store Donations

 Winter 2021: ReStyle, the Unity House thrift store, is currently CLOSED to the public. We cannot accept clothing donations at the time. Guests with an emergency need for clothing can be assisted through our Community Resources, where staff have access to existing stock. 

If you have a high needs item like a winter coat to donate, please call us to discuss as we can make exceptions based on needs. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we maintain safe spaces for staff, volunteers, and guests.

Check the Unity House Facebook page to stay up to date on the latest news.

What is the Unity House Thrift Store?

ReStyle offers new and used clothing, shoes and accessories at affordable prices. The store offers clothes, shoes and accessories 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 note: clothing donations are on pause

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. If you have large donations that you cannot transport or we do not accept what you’re looking to donate, please try:
