With CarePartners Foundation thrift store locations in Asheville (Buncombe County) and Marion (McDowell County), a good bargain is never out of reach.
Every time you shop at our stores you are helping support to Adult Day Services and Grief Support Services of MountainCare.
You can also donate gently used clothing and household items to both locations.
How to Donate
Our thrift stores happily accept gently used items including furniture, housewares, clothing, toys, books, music, and tools.
Drop off your donations at the location of your choice.

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities available:
We value the donations we receive. Friendly volunteers help us receive the many items donated each day and issue receipts for donors.
Volunteer retail assistants keep our store in tip-top shape, whether it’s arranging the clothing for display or restocking shelves.
Donation sorters keep our backroom efficient. We need volunteers who can spot hidden gems and vintage finds of value.
Building / Designing Displays
Our merchandise changes daily. We need creative volunteers to keep our retail floor and window displays looking great, often changing with the seasons and holidays.
Pricing / Tagging
Once donations are sorted, we need volunteers to price items. Specific guidelines are given for pricing merchandise, be it clothing or household items.
There is no task too great or too small. CarePartners Foundation Thrift Stores work to keep our businesses clean, free from smells and dirty merchandise.
Volunteers who ring up sales also offer a friendly face to the public, acting as ambassadors for CarePartners Foundation.
