The Hospice Shop
When you donate your items to the Hospice Shop, your donation stays in the community, supporting family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers who need the love and care of our Hospice services.
The Hospice Shop of Northampton sells gently used, quality Women’s and Men’s clothing, shoes, purses, jewelry, household items, and more. Volunteers committed to the Hospice mission donate more than 5,400 hours annually to ensure that quality end-of-life care is available in our community.
