The SIMHS operates two thrift shops, where budget-minded shoppers can find gently-used clothing and accessories for women, men and children, as well as housewares and sundries, at rock-bottom prices. The shops are managed and staffed by volunteers and all proceeds support our programs and services.

No retailing experience is required to volunteer as a thrift shop staffer. But you should be a person who enjoys meeting people and helping them find “just the right thing.” Among the responsibilities shared by staffers are sorting through donated items, taking inventory of clothing by season, hanging and displaying merchandise attractively, decorating the shop in a seasonal manner, and collecting money from customers.

The Great Kills Thrift Shop opened its doors in 1963, followed by the Tottenville Thrift Shop in 1970.

We welcome new volunteers at each of our thrift shops. And we hope you will visit our shops, where you will always bag a bargain.

South Shore Clinic Committee

The South Shore Clinic Committee was organized in 1962 as a fundraising and support arm for the SIMHS’s South Shore Mental Health Center. The Committee members assist in the operation of the Great Kills and Tottenville Thrift Shops that benefit the SIMHS’s programs and services, as well as consumers on limited budgets, especially those who live on the South Shore.

For more information about volunteering, call Maryann Striffolino, Director of Volunteer Services, at 718-442-2225, Ext. 302/304 or send an E-mail to
