CHKD Thrift Stores

(757) 668-7000
The CHKD Thrift Stores are a project of the Norfolk City Union of The King's Daughters, the founding organization of CHKD. The first CHKD Thrift Store opened in 1986 in Norfolk on Little Creek Road. CHKD Thrift Stores have expanded to include 27 locations throughout Hampton Roads and Richmond, including Elizabeth City and Kitty Hawk, NC.

Help Support CHKD

The stores provide a much needed, inexpensive opportunity for shopping. All items donated are tax deductible at their fair market value. Sales from all CHKD Thrift Stores benefit CHKD. The Thrift Stores bring in more than $2.5 million to CHKD in a single year. Community support helps CHKD provide quality health care to our community children, who annually make more than 600,000 visits to CHKD Health System providers.

Donations Guidelines

We accept donations of household discards in resalable condition except major appliances.

If you would like to donate an operational car or truck, boat, house trailer, etc., please contact ABC Virginia Auto Auction at (757) 487-3464 for details. The thrift stores are unable to accept vehicles.

The value of donations is determined by the price items sell for, however CHKD Thrift Store representatives will be willing to help in assessing the value of donations if needed.

A fleet of trucks is dispatched to pick up donations throughout the community. Also, donations may be dropped off at all locations during business hours.

Schedule a Pick-Up

Approximately 400 pick-ups take place each month and are generally scheduled a week in advance.

Free pick-up of donations is available Monday through Friday throughout the year and also on Saturdays during warm weather months. Saturday pick-ups should be scheduled in advance as community yard sales book up quickly.

To schedule a free pick-up of items call:

  • (757) 622-KIDS -- Southside
