As you plan to downsize, you might feel good about donating some of your unwanted items to local thrift stores, giving your things another life. We have compiled a list of local stores in Kingston for you to consider. Each listing includes a description of how they ‘give back’ to community through funds generated by your donated items. By recycling in this way, your items get a new home, organizations get funding for community programs and we avoid contributing to landfill sites.
