After being closed for several months to protect our loyal customers and our volunteers from COVID-19, San Diego’s Favorite Thrift Shop on the corner of First and University reopened in July. We’re eager to welcome you back!

Please check the Thrift Shop page on this website for current days and hours.

Also, we have a limited ability to accept donations at this time. If you want to inquire about whether we’re accepting donations, please contact us.

Assistance League of Greater San Diego provides scholarships for full-time community college students transitioning to bachelor’s degree programs. Scholarships were awarded in May for the 2020-21 school year.

Nine students were awarded scholarships and will transition from local community colleges to 4-year universities, including UCSD, USD, San Diego State, UC Berkeley, and Laguna College of Art and Design. Their major fields include psychology, pediatrics, business administration/accounting, education, law and film studies.

We congratulate these hard-working and deserving students!
