T-Shirts are also available at our Metro Centers in St. Pete and Tampa, as well as Metro Thrift and Gift.Metro Thrift and Gift needs your donated furnishings. The store sells gently used and new household and clothing goods and is a revenue stream for Metro Wellness & Community Centers. So when you shop with us, you’re making a larger impact on the community.
100% of store profits are used to support ongoing HIV/AIDS programs and services and provide purchase certificates for hundreds of people with HIV in the Tampa Bay area. Virtually every purchase or donation that you make can have a direct impact on people and/or families affected by HIV/AIDS in Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties.
Serving St. Petersburg for more than a decade, Metro Thrift and Gift has been instrumental in providing free household goods, clothing, and other merchandise to anyone living with HIV/AIDS through donated merchandise and sales to the general community. Purchase certificates are available through all case management agencies in Pinellas County.
Donate Quality Household Goods and Gently Used Clothing
We offer a pick-up service of furniture on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.
Please call 727-321-7212 during normal business hours in advance to schedule the date and time of pick up. Also, check with your neighbors to see if they have unwanted items they would like to donate. The more donations to pick up in one general neighborhood, the better!
Please have the merchandise boxed or bagged at pick-up. If arrangements are made during a time when you will not be there, please make sure that everything is labeled appropriately for Metro.

“Would I give this to a friend or family member?”
Metro Thrift & Gift appreciates the good will and generosity of our donors but ask you to read the guidelines posted here before bringing your items. We are forced to haul items that do not sell to the dump, which is costly and wasteful, and therefore reduces our funding potential for much needed HIV/AIDS services and programs.
