Host a Fundraiser
New and gently used clothing and household items may be donated to our “Shop on Park” thrift store at the State Street Presbyterian Church, 5 Catherine St., in Schenectady. Due to COVID-19, we are operating under limited capacity. We ask that you call the shop Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. to reserve a time to drop off your donation: 518-579-2514.
Note: We cannot accept out-of-season clothing, used undergarments or bathing suits, toys, games, DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes, used cribs or car seats (due to model recalls and expirations), used computers, televisions, or furniture.
Northern Rivers and our affiliates partner with American Clothing on year-round fundraising through blue donation binsplaced throughout the capital region. Items donated in these bins are reused throughout the US and abroad, and Northern Rivers benefits from the proceeds. Acceptable items include men’s, ladies & children’s clothing, handbags, belts, paired shoes & sneakers, household linens, material, stuffed animals, hats and scarves.

Our Amazon wish lists are updated often to reflect the year-round needs of the children, adults, and families we serve. Multiply your impact by choosing Northern Rivers as your Amazon Smile beneficiary!
