Second Chances Community Free Store
Located at 23 W. Green Street, Second Chances is HSP’s community FREE store. We receive donations from the community and offer them to people who are in need. We provide a wide array of goods like household items, small appliances, decorations, toys, clothing, and furniture. Our primary purpose is to give those exiting our shelter programs a place to shop for needed items as they set up their new home.
Workers at Second Chances are participating in HSP’s Opportunity Program. They are doing hands-on job training while receiving long-term case management support as they look to improve their economic situation.
Shopping days are Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10AM-3PM.
A shopping voucher from HSP’s Main Office at 10 Distillery Drive in Westminster is required. Ask for one at the front desk.
FREE FOR ALL SHOPPING DAYS:
FREE FOR ALLS are held on the fourth Friday of each month from 11AM-2PM. No voucher is required to shop. Occasionally, we will offer additional free-for-alls throughout the year. Please follow the Second Chances Facebook page for those announcements.
Donations are accepted Monday-Friday 10AM-3PM. Please pull into the alley and ring the bell on the garage. We will gladly assist you and provide a receipt.
We do not accept the following items:
Car Seats over five years old (or that have been in an accident)
TVs that are not flat screen.
***Do not leave items outside after donation hours – it costs us valuable resources to discard them.***
Due to space limitations, we cannot currently accept any furniture drop-offs.
Furniture donations must be done by appointment only and are based on our current needs and the space available.
We are looking mostly for the following items, in good condition without rips, tears, stains, or major scratches:
