We have a lot of items for donation - clothing, household goods, kitchen items, books, etc. Is there a thrift store or other charity on island where we could donate them? I tried to email about the annual Garage sale for the Children's charity, but so far no response from them.

on St. Croix, the Animal Shelter Flea Market in Estate Richmond would appreciate the donation.
they are located on the little side street, just past the Post Office and Olympic Rental Car heading into Csted on the left
778-1650 is the only number I have for them

Catholic Charities of the Virgin Islands which help the poor and homeless would like donations of clothing, furniture, household goods.
Phone # 773-0132
32A King St. Rear
Christiansted, Stx

It sure is nice to help the Humane Society and donate to their flea market store, so they can raise funds for their facility, but I think people are more important nowadays. I would look into other charities that help people.

I am an animal lover!!

I would donate items to their store that charities that help people won't accept. Also, donate your time and money to the facility to help the animals. IMHO

I would give it to the animal shelter flea market!
The animals can't help themselves, we have to!

Maybe I'll just give half to each. It's more than one trip anyway. 🙂

I did say donate to the animal shelter's flea market store.

Some of the homeless can't help themselves. The majority of them have a mental illness, which is a real disease according to the American Medical Association. Yeah, you are going to say a lot are drug addict or alcoholics. Research and see the reason why "most" use illegal drugs or alcohol. It is their coping mechanisms for their undiagnosed mental illness.
I know there are "real" addicts out there. Some making the conscious decision to be one.

With the closing of Hovensa, you would think the people of Stx would band together to help the upcoming poor.
If you read statistics most people are "working poor". Working paycheck to paycheck.
Or the elderly, disabled, returning soldiers from the war (who are some of the "new" highest group signing up for welfare benefits).

You can help the animal in other ways. Donate your time, money, attend their functions, donate items that charities that help people will not be able to accept. For example, books. There are a lot readers out there that would be happy to buy books at the flea market store.

Just a heads-up for any of you on St Thomas who have items to donate. The Humane Society shelter's new flea market store is now open in the new facility (tel: 775-0599) while the Nana-Baby Home in Anna's Retreat (775-0044) which takes care of displaced children is always grateful for donations of all sorts of goods - children's toys, bedding, computers, desks, chairs, learning tools and much more.
