The Op Shop accepts donations of clothing and shoes for women, men and children; bedding, curtains, drapes and linens; household items and home decor; books, toys and jewelry. Donations are accepted at the Op Shop front desk or the rear door off the Rectory driveway. A donation form is provided for tax purposes, upon request.
Volunteers who staff the Op Shop enjoy the satisfaction of helping people find what they need. If you are interested in volunteering as a clerk, pricer, or cashier, please contact Melody Knight, Opportunity Shop manager.
The Op Shop and the funds it brings in are managed by Workers of St. Alban’s (or WSA). Funds obtained from the Opportunity Shop are used to support programs directly assisting people in need. Click here to find out more about the WSA and how your program can apply for a WSA grant.
The Op Shop has set sales records every year since 2016, raising more than $300,000 each year for charitable donations. Help us break the record again this year!
