What We Do

Our Community Outreach

The Community Kindness of Eastern Oregon Thrift Store is a way for us to generate funds that are used to give back to our community. No profit goes to shareholders or into an owners pocket. It's important to us that you know how your donation of money, time, or goods is helping your community!

How We Spread Kindness 

  • We donate cash, goods, and give service to multiple organizations and individuals in need throughout Eastern Oregon.
  • We engage in random acts of kindness.
  • We create and help with programs to benefit people and communities in Eastern Oregon.
  • We provide a means for people to assist others with their kindness and provide an example of charity for our neighbors and community.
  • We invite you to join us in our goal of spreading kindness and charity to improve Eastern Oregon.

    Here are a few of the local programs we're involved in.
