Here is another way to support us, and have a blast while doing it!
You can shop at our thrift store,
Clark & Atherton Mercantile
1772 Clark Ave., Long Beach, CA 90815 • (562) 342-6487
Open daily 11 am – 5 pm
Discover gently owned treasures and shop for a cause.
Clark & Atherton Mercantile is operated by COA (Christian Outreach in Action), the largest outreach program supporting homeless people and low-income communities in Long Beach.
Your donation helps us continue serving meals and other numerous programs for those in need. We are all volunteers, and everything we do goes back into helping those less fortunate than us.
At Clark & Atherton Mercantile, we depend on volunteers to help run the store. Our shifts are flexible and we can sometimes accommodate small groups. Please fill out our volunteer form here.
We’re also on the lookout for great donations:
gently used clothing • interesting home goods • vintage items • collectibles • jewelry • art
small vintage furniture (dressers, accent tables, accent chairs)
What we can’t use gets distributed weekly to homeless people, low-income families, and seniors.
What we can’t accept:
electronics • appliances • mattresses and bedding • pillows • children’s toys • games • large furniture
car seats & cribs • sports or safety equipment (helmets, etc.) • lawn mowers and tools
If you have something you think we can use, call us at (562) 342-6487.
