Last year, our Resale Retail and Recycling gave back $350,000 to our mission! The General Stores in Clear Lake and Fort Dodge offer quality used clothing and household goods for sale. Proceeds from our thrift stores go toward services provided to individuals supported by One Vision.
The stores also accept donations of gently-used or new items. Click here for a list of items the stores can and cannot accept. Donations may be dropped off at either store during store hours (see below). At the Clear Lake store, donations are only accepted Tuesday through Saturday, not on Sunday or Monday. Receipts are available at the time of donation for tax purposes. View a partial list of items we can and cannot accept.
