Castaways Thrift Shop

Our resale shop in Janesville opened in 1982 and is run entirely by members of the Mercy Health System Association of Volunteers. Money raised at Castaways is used to fund Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center equipment purchases, scholarships, and contributions to the Wigs for Patients program and the House of Mercy Homeless Center.

We gladly accept donations of new and gently used clothing, furniture, gift items, magazines, seasonal décor and household goods. Items must be clean, and in good to excellent condition

Please drop off items at the front counter or inside the back door during store hours. Do not leave items outside. Pickup arrangements can be made by calling the store.
