FreeStore Austin is one of the signature programs of Common Good Community Development, a faith-based nonprofit dedicated to building beloved community in the Capital city. The FreeStore receives household materials and clothing and freely distributes these materials to shoppers with an emphasis on hospitality and community building. When our shop is open, all are welcome. We'd don't ask for documentation or proof of need. Every item is freely offered. Through these "shop-ortunities", shoppers are empowered by the freedom to choose. We believe everyone has needs and everyone needs to give. We depend on volunteers from across the whole community and have many key volunteers who visit the freestore as shoppers as well. We're proud that our shoppers volunteer to extend the FreeStore experience to others.
We connect people who need and people who need to give, through weekly opportunities to shop for free clothing and small household items. All are welcome!
