Shop with us! Every purchase makes a difference
In October 2022, our Mount Airy thrift shop relocated and underwent a complete transformation with an enhanced selection of pre-loved furniture, home decor, and clothing. The new store aims to look and feel different from other charity shops. We named it The Humble Hare because we wanted a whimsical name to match the cheerful vibe of our new store.
The Humble Hare provides a curated, vibrant shopping experience for those who appreciate nice things at a fair price. When you shop at The Humble Hare, not only are you are purchasing a high-quality item at an affordable price, but you are also making a difference in the lives of hospice patients and their families.
100% of the proceeds from The Humble Hare help to pay for end-of-life care and related services for uninsured and underinsured patients who lack the financial resources to pay for their care.

We take great pride in the quality of our donations to generate revenue to support the most vulnerable members of our community. A couple of questions to ask yourself before bringing your donations: If you needed it, would you buy it in this condition? Would you feel comfortable giving that item to a friend, neighbor, or family member? If you are unsure about whether or not we will accept a particular item, please contact us before bringing it to the shop. Also, we kindly ask that you do not leave donations outside the store.
