your donations make all the Difference.

The Graham Crisis Center makes available to our clients, 
free of charge, clothing, shoes, coats, household, and other 
donated items. High quality and unique items sell in our thrift store, The Nifty Thrifty, at 601 Indiana Street, Graham, Texas.
 
Donated items that are not in good condition or remain unsold after a length of time will be salvaged. This gets the most value out of every donation – and keeps items out of the landfill.
 
Your donations that sell help fund programs and services for those experiencing food insecurities, struggling to keep current on utility bills or housing, and needing a safe place due to abandonment or abuse.

just bring your Goods around back.

Donations of new and gently used items are accepted during the following times:

• Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8am – Noon

• Tuesday and Thursday from 8am – Noon and 1pm – 3pm

Please call our Store Manager at (940)549-0411 before bringing large loads of donations to be sure we have room to accept them.
