Why Common Threads?
Common Threads has the resources to accept donations on our behalf and house them until they are delivered to the homeless through the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless (NEOCH). Have items not on the SocksPLUS list that you want to donate? No problem! Common Threads will also accept your donations of clothing, furniture, household goods, toys and more – many items that SocksPLUS could not previously accept.
Through this partnership, we are able to do even more for those in need in our community. We call it “The Thread of Good” and here is how it works:
Will my donation go directly to the homeless?
Yes. If you donate items needed for SocksPLUS, they will go to the homeless. Keep in mind, Common Threads accepts all types of in-kind donations which directly benefit the ministries of Building Hope in the City.
Will I receive a receipt for my taxes?
Yes. Common Threads in Fairview Park will provide you with a tax receipt for your donation to SocksPLUS.
Can I still drop off a SocksPLUS donation at Community West Foundation in Westlake?
Unfortunately, there is no room for donations at Community West Foundation. Please drop off your SocksPLUS donations at Common Threads in Fairview Park.

About Common Threads:
Common Threads is an initiative of Building Hope in the City, a Cleveland faith-based non-profit organization with a mission to advance the good of the city, magnify the mission of Jesus, and unleash the capability of underestimated people. As a 100% local, 100% nonprofit thrift store, Common Threads has a unique model, where all sales from donated items directly benefit individuals and families right here in the Greater Cleveland community through the ministries of Building Hope in the City*. Twice voted Cleveland’s best thrift store and once voted first runner up since its opening in 2016, Common Threads gives witness to the power and excellence of Jesus and his people in the marketplace. Common Threads has an efficient and smart process for doing the most good with each and every donation. They even recycle items and clothing they cannot use to help protect the environment.
