About Us

We sell your second-hand items and you give our men a second chance at life

What is Beacon House Thrift Shop?

Beacon House Thrift Shop is a social enterprise program of the Beacon House Association of San Pedro, a state-certified, residential substance abuse recovery program for men and a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (we provide donation receipts for tax purposes).

The men of Beacon House work at the thrift shop to practice the life and job skills they need to build a successful future, while proceeds from second-hand donation sales benefit the recovery program that gives these men a second chance at life!

Profits are used to fund our adult men drug and alcohol rehabilitation program,
The Beacon House Association of San Pedro.

Donations

We take all kinds of items! Please review our Donation Acceptance Policy for a more thorough explanation. 

You can use our online tool to help you setup a donation pickup. 

  • Please review our Donation Acceptance Policy before dropping off donations. We really appreciate your support, but we can only take items that can be used and/or sold at the Beacon House Thrift Shop!
  • We accept small donations (trunk-sized loads or smaller) at either Beacon House Thrift Shop location every day!
    812 S Pacific Ave, San Pedro, CA 90731
    3220 E Anaheim St, Long Beach, CA 90804
  • You can drop donations off with our men any time between 11 AM and 7 PM. When you arrive at the store, find a spot out front and let us know you have items to donate!
  • Please DO NOT drop donations off before or after store hours!

Unfortunately our store is not set up to receive large-scale donations without any pre-planning. We need to inspect larger items and we prefer to pick them up, so please schedule a pickup instead! We may refer you to another organization if we cannot take items you are dropping off.

Let’s be honest… some donated items just will not sell, especially if they have excessive damage or are simply unusable, and it costs money to dispose of items that cannot be used or sold. We pride ourselves in ethical and responsible disposal.

Please remember to review our Donation Acceptance Policy to see what we will and will not accept before you schedule a pick-up or make plans to drop off your donation to ensure we do not need to dispose of any items.

  • If you do have items that need to be hauled/disposed: Please email us at ThriftShop@thebeaconhouse.org to let us know what you have, along with pictures of the item(s), and we will provide you with a quote for hauling/disposal.
  • If you have a massive clean out with multiple items that need to be hauled/disposed: Email us with as many details as possible, so we can discuss it. We want to help you and provide you with options – if possible – as best we can!
