We greatly appreciate and accept donations during business hours, up to 1/2 hour prior to closing. Due to OPSEC and security reasons, we cannot accept donations outside of business hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The RESA Thrift Shop proudly runs a Food Pantry in which all E5 and below members and family members are eligible to receive up to 4 food items per day for FREE! Please stop by the RESA Thrift Shop during business hours for more information.

The RESA Thrift Shop CANNOT accept the following donations:
Car seats, cribs, crib mattresses, helmets, used medical equipment, tube TVs, tube monitors, VCRs, VHS tapes, scratched nonstick pots and pans, used undergarments, damaged or broken items, soiled/stained/ripped clothing items. Food items must not be expired and/or opened.

Our mission is to provide an affordable shopping experience for those stationed in the Kaiserslautern Military Community. We perform a 100% ID check at the register, so if you are an I.D. card holder with Commissary and/or BX privileges, feel free to shop!  We also buy and sell transformers.  Please check with our Manager for more details.

We are unable to write tax receipts for your donations as we are not a 501(c)(3 ) organization.  All of our profits are returned to the community, so we are also unable to negotiate prices or accept returns. 

The RESA Thrift Shop follows the DoDDS Schedule and is closed during Winter Holiday Break and Spring Break. We close during inclement weather and are also closed on Federal Holidays. Signs will be posted in the store and listen to AFN radio for weather announcements.
