Donate Stuff


Thrift Shop

Please note that we will not be able to accept donations or pick up furniture when we close for inclement weather. When the Beverly Public Schools close due to inclement weather, Beverly Bootstraps closes too. We will also be closed during parking bans and until one hour after they are lifted. If there is inclement weather on a non-school day, please call ahead at 978-927-1561 x 111.

Gently used clothing, household items and decor, furniture and books are all items that can be donated to our Thrift Shop.

All proceeds from the Thrift Shop provide financial support for the programs and services provided by Beverly Bootstraps.

While we do accept a wide variety of items, there are some that we cannot accept. Please reference this list of items that we can and cannot accept.
