Your Donations Help Local Kids Find Hope and Healing

Donating to Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch Thrift Stores supports the greater mission of the organization: to help the most troubled and amazing kids become their best selves! Donate your gently used items at our thrift store locations or call to schedule a pickup.

At most of our locations, we are accepting donations Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. or until the store's donation quarantine space is full. At our Minot and Bismarck locations, donation hours are limited to Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., or until the store's donation quarantine space is full.  (Outlet Store location does not accept donations.)
