Stores and Donations

Donation Center

Our Donation Center serves as the organizational hub for all donated and repurposed items. Items are sorted daily and designated for sale in one of the Mission's Thrifty Shopper retail stores or given away to those in need through our Family Care Center pantries.

Development Ministries

There are a number of ways to partner with the Erie City Mission.

We could not do what we do without the generosity and support of donors like you. Our homeless neighbors would not be served, the hurting would not be healed and the hopeless would not be helped without the compassion of our donors who support us.

Whether you can give your money, your goods or your time – we want to partner with you!
