Family Life Thrift Store
Welcome to the Family Life Thrift Store in Fargo, ND.
We officially opened on March 8th, 2010. If you have not stopped in to see our new store, we strongly encourage you to do so. We work extremely hard to keep our prices affordable in order to keep you coming back. You will see that our store is packed with all types of treasures. With our low prices, things don’t stay long, so stop in today and enjoy a hot cup of coffee while you scour our shelves for goodies!
Our Mission: To provide quality merchandise at affordable prices in support of local Christian ministries and education.
The Family Life Thrift Store is a ministry of Family Life Services, Inc. Family Life Services has been offering faith-based financial education, resources, and counseling in the Fargo-Moorhead area since 1986.
Where Are We Located?
Who Do We Support?
A portion of The Family Life Thrift Store proceeds go to The Perry Center. The Perry Center is a God-centered maternity home for expectant mothers reaching out to strengthen and provide for them spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. To know more about the Perry Center please visit their website at www.perrycenter.org. A portion of the proceeds also helps support financially-based education and workshops throughout Family Life Services’ footprint. Additional proceeds go to support local Christian ministries within our community.

Got some extra stuff?
Are looking to downsize and not sure what to do with all your stuff? How about donating it to a great cause? Family Life Thrift Store would be honored to accept your “stuff.” We have a list of needs and priorities, but we are also happy to accept things that are maybe not on the list, too! We only have a few things we are not able to accept.
If you cannot drop your stuff off at our store location, we would be more than happy to schedule a pick-up. Call 701-373-0052. Currently we have one truck driving throughout the community making pick-ups at various locations. All your donated goods are tax-deductible as we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Please consult your tax adviser for assistance in determining the value of your donated items. This IRS Publication may also be helpful.
Consider making a donation to our ministry. In order to better serve our community, we rely on monetary donations as well as merchandise. Your monetary donations will stay within this community and be added to our Family Life Thrift Store Benevolence Fund. This fund is in place to help families that are struggling to make ends meet. As funds are available we have the ability to meet the core needs of families and individuals in our community. In some instances, we are able to buy groceries for someone in need, subsidize a rent payment for a single parent, purchase school supplies for a student, sponsor a child with milk money and so much more.
Stop in to read stories of how your money could impact or has impacted the lives of individuals in our community.
There are many needs in our community; help us meet those needs in Jesus’ name.
