Project ECHO now has a store where you can help the homeless by shopping (yes, shopping!) and donating your gently used clothes and household goods. We’re staffed by volunteers and stocked by donations so every dollar spent at Project ECHO Thrift & Gift Shop goes toward our mission of helping the homeless. We’re incredibly excited about this and we can’t wait for you to come see our new place! The store is now open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10am – 4pm. It’s located at 885 Main Street, just a half mile south of the shelter.
Inclement Weather Closings
The Thrift & Gift Shop follows Calvert County Public School inclement weather policy. If schools are closed or delayed 2 hours our shop will be closed or delayed 2 hours. It’s very important to us that all of our volunteers and shoppers stay safe. If you’re ever unsure of store hours or weather closings please check out our Facebook page for regular updates. Thank you!
Thrift & Gift Shop eGift Cards are now available! Send them to your friends and family or even send them to a family in need. If you don’t personally know a family in need and would like us to choose one for you we would be more than happy to do so. Your eGift Card can be emailed to ECHOthrift@comcast.net and we can disburse them to shelter residents, former shelter residents, members of our shared-living houses or members of our Oxford recovery houses. Gift certificates available for purchase in the shop.
We’re still working on filling our volunteer-staff roster so if you can give a few hours a week we would love to have you join our team! Completed forms can be sent to Teressa Beavers at ECHOthrift@comcast.net or just bring them into the shop.
Stay Updated With Social Media
Check us out on social media for special deals, customer reviews and pictures.
We accept new and gently used clothing and most household items in clean, working condition. The main exception is outdated electronics and items that may be a health and hygiene risk. We simply can’t sell used health and beauty items such as foot baths, humidifiers, etc. Our space is limited so furniture donations must also be limited. The list of items we can and can not accept is available here.
Donations are accepted Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am – 2pm. These hours are subject to change based upon space and availability. If you want to verify acceptable hours, if you have large items or a large quantity of items please call ahead to ensure that we’re able to accept your delivery 443-975-7376. Thank you for your understanding!
