EveryStep Giving Tree thrift store helps carry out the EveryStep non-profit mission by directing all proceeds from thrift store sales toward programs and services which benefit EveryStep's patients, clients and their families.
In October 2010, EveryStep opened EveryStep Giving Tree thrift store at 3330 100th St. in Urbandale, Iowa. We provide exceptional, unique merchandise at affordable prices to our customers in Des Moines and central Iowa. The store is a local favorite thanks to its department-store-like environment, friendly shopping experience and the high quality of its merchandise.
Since its opening, the store's showroom has expanded twice to accommodate the growing amount of gently used donations from supporters. EveryStep Giving Tree gladly accepts donations of clothing, accessories, furniture, home decor, bedding, household items, and more. All donations and store sales support EveryStep’s programs, including hospice care, grief support and services for children and families. EveryStep Giving Tree is operated by a small group of staff and a strong corps of dedicated volunteers.
