A Hand Up to Neighbors in Need

We collect, sort, recycle and sell clothing and household items of any type donated by the community. The Help Center staff educates people on ways to utilize assistance programs that are available in Wilson County. The Wilson County Community Help Center will come in contact with more residents each week than any other agency in this county.

Six days a week we provide emergency assistance in the form of food, clothing, resource education and financial aid to Wilson County residents.

The Help Center distributed over 30,000 pounds of food to feed the hungry in our county last year alone.

Our clothing program has provided more than 1,000 coats each year to warm the needy.

Free medical equipment is available.


We accept all kinds of donations, from financial to materials and time. Cash donations are needed in order to maintain the emergency assistance fund and help with operating expenses. We are designated a 501(c)3, so we do rely heavily on our great Wilson County community to keep our doors open.

Time donations are a great way to help your community as individuals, companies or as a family. We need volunteers to help assemble food boxes, organize and distribute clothing, and many other various jobs within our thrift store.
