Spring Cleaning Time!

It’s that time of year again! As the cold temperatures change to warm, our closets undergo a transformation as well. Sweaters are removed to make way for shorts. Coats are swapped out for cut offs.

Our Sparrow’s Nest Thrift Stores are convenient Donation Centers. As you clean out your closets, attics, basements, and garages, please share those gently used items you no longer need or want with someone who can put them back to work.
With furniture and other large items, Home of the Sparrow makes it easy to schedule a FREE DONATION pick up! Simply click on the box below, share what you wish to have picked up, pick your preferred dates & times and we will handle the rest!

Not only can you be free from the clutter, you can directly impact the lives of the women and children Home of the Sparrow serves.

    I am cleaning out my parents home and have old antique furniture, a couch, pictures for walls, desks, chairs, and glassware and other miscellaneous items. Everything needs to go. My father passed away, my mother has dementia and is no longer living at the house. The house is currently on the market for sale.
