“Tails” From the Retail Front
Updated: Apr 21
Are you looking for a way to help the animals, but you are not in a position where you can adopt or foster? Not to worry, there are three ways that you can lend a hand to paws in need: donate, shop or volunteer!
Donate: Ever wonder what to do with all the stuff you no longer have space for or need? We can help! The Halifax Humane Society Thrift Store in Ormond Beach takes gently used items ranging from appliances, books, clothing and accessories, electronics, furniture, household items, linens, pet supplies, and more! Your unwanted items get a new life and help save the lives of animals in the process! Items that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill are resold in the shop to raise much-needed funds that support our animal welfare programs. The store is open 7 days a week, and donations are welcome during regular business hours until 3 pm or until we have reached capacity.
The store offers free large item donation pick up on Tuesdays and Saturdays by appointment for items that may not be as easy to load into a car.
Shop: Yes. You read that right! You can shop and help save the lives of animals. The HHS Thrift Store is 5,000 square feet of new and gently used merchandise, all at amazing prices. The store has daily 50% off sales, and clothing is ALWAYS half price! With new items arriving daily, there is always something new to discover! The store is not just for people; the store also offers something for your four-legged family member! The store carries Blackwood and Adirondack Premium Pet food, pet beds, enrichment toys, flea preventative, and grooming supplies for cats and dogs! There is truly something for everyone! Well behaved, leashed pets are always welcome to visit!
In addition, the thrift store has an online eBay shop where you can shop 24/7! Online, you can find everything from collectibles, jewelry to designer clothing, purses, and shoes! With new items for sale at any given time, one never knows what treasures that they may find!
Volunteer: We are always looking for a few good volunteers! Even a few hours a month can make a huge difference. The thrift store is looking for folks to help with everything from accepting, sorting, and displaying donations to assisting customers and keeping the store organized. Do you have a special skill like the ability to test electronics or identifying antiques, for example? We could definitely use your help! Even if you have never worked in a retail environment, we are looking for people of all abilities with a passion for helping animals. We can show you the rest! We offer flexible schedules and a rewarding way to make a difference in the lives of animals. For details on how you can become a volunteer, contact our Volunteer Manager at (386) 274-4703 ext. 319.
