Bedazzled jeans and that sweater that never fit right may have seen better days, but they can still help support Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Simply bring used clothing, shoes and household goods to the Unique Thrift or Valu Thrift stores or donation drop-offs in the map below. Don’t worry about rips or stains–Big Brothers Big Sisters benefits by the pound, so ALL donations help, especially those big clunky winter boots you never wear!
That “Backstreet Boys” t-shirt or too-tight blazer gets new life in someone else’s wardrobe. You get a cleaner closet and a tax deduction. Non-wearable clothing gets recycled into new materials and, best of all, Twin Cities kids get a life-changing mentor.

“My Big Sister is a great role model,” Little Sister Eileen
Eileen was in elementary school when she was matched with Big Sister Stacy. Moving from elementary school to middle school was “a really big step” for Eileen, and Stacy was there as a consistent role model and supporter during the transition. A first-generation student, Eileen is proudly pursuing a B.S. in health and wellness at the University of Minnesota, the first in her family to attend college.
