The Beachtown Charities Thrift Store was started by a former manager and by a volunteer at the Family Promise Thrift Store that closed earlier in 2015.

The Beachtown Charities Thrift Store, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable corporation, run only by volunteers, which opened in Lincoln City, Oregon, on March 3, 2016.

The Beachtown Charities Thrift Store has four primary missions:

(1) Provide a comfortable, friendly, affordable place to shop for all guests, including the 44% of Lincoln City’s population that is low-income;

(2) Provide an alternative place to donate quality used items that will benefit local charities;

(3) Donate proceeds from Thrift Store sales to local charities, starting with Family Promise of Lincoln County and Backpacks for Kids; and

(4) Give unsold items to the unknown numbers of homeless living in cars, tents, and the ground in Lincoln City.

Your donations of quality items to sell, and funding, are greatly appreciated.
