Donate to NOVA’s Thrift Shop

Temporarily Not Accepting Donations

Dear Thrift Shop Donors and Shoppers,

Due to Governor Wolf’s request, NOVA Thrift Shop will be closed until further notice. During our closure, the shop will not be accepting donations. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed. The health and safety of our customers, volunteers, and staff is our number one priority.

This is a great time for spring cleaning! We look forward to your donations once we reopen. We kindly ask that you do not leave donations in our parking lot or by the donation door. Donations left during the shop’s closure will become unsaleable as no one will be at the shop to accept them. While we deeply appreciate your desire to donate your goods to us, leaving donations during this time will cost us money as we will need to dispose of them.

Your donations and purchases support the critical services that NOVA provides to our community. We are incredibly grateful for your contributions and for your support! We thank you for your patience and understanding as we all work to navigate the next few weeks.

We do hope to be able offer online shopping and sales in the near future. You can see our updates by:

If you have an immediate need or question, you may contact the shop at 215-249-8000 or message our Facebook page. A member of the staff will be in touch with you within 24 hours.

Thank you for your continued support. We wish you and your loved ones good health.
