The Free Store is an incredible opportunity to volunteer in the Southside neighborhood, helping people select books, toys, clothes and much more for their families. Everything in the store is provided to families, free of cost, so that they do not need to worry about paying for these basic necessities. 

  • More than 40,000 families have become members of the Free Store since the doors opened in 1999. 
  • Free Store volunteers assist in a variety of roles: greeting, inventory, racking and signing out families.
  • 14 is the minimum age required and all minors must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Parking: There is a free parking lot on the North Side of the building. Street parking is also available.
  • Donations of toiletries, household items and clothing are accepted!
