We are City Thrift

City Thrift is owned by City Union Mission. City Thrift’s second hand stores in the Kansas City area are non-profit thrift stores and all proceeds benefit City Union Mission. To donate clothes, furniture, or toys to our Kansas City resale shops, or to learn more about City Union Mission, please visit their website.

Since 1924, City Union Mission has provided warm beds, nutritious food, and a place of safety for thousands of poverty-stricken and homeless men, women, and children. Founded by Rev. and Mrs. David Bulkley, the Mission’s staff has been uncompromising in our commitment to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the hurting and the lost. City Union Mission receives no government support and is not a United Way agency. The Mission and our second hand stores in Kansas City depend completely on the gifts of God’s people – individuals, churches, groups, foundations, and businesses who have a heart for the poor and homeless in their local community.

City Union Mission provides shelter and warm meals to Kansas City’s Homeless and less fortunate. If you or someone you know needs shelter, please call the Hotline at (816) 474-4599, and we’ll do everything possible to assist you.
