The United Methodist Free Store provides gently used clothing and household items to individuals and families in a hospitable atmosphere that affirms the self-worth of each individual. More than 50,000 families have become members of the Free Store since we opened our doors in January 1999.  The success of the Free Store is the result of individuals, local businesses, and church congregations in the Central Ohio area. And of course our volunteers!

We accept donations of gently used clothing (infant-adult sizes) and household items (books, toys, dishes, linens, baby items, etc.).


Customer service, sorting donations, and restocking racks, shelves and shoes.
