STM Free Store

The St. Thomas More Free Store is a community outreach ministry of St. Thomas More Catholic Community which provides clothing and small housewares for free. It is open on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from Noon-1 pm for dropping off donated items and 1-3 pm for guests. It is located in the basement of our parish school, located at 1065 Summit Avenue, St. Paul.

We offer new and gently used clothing, linens, shoes, housewares, and small household items, free of charge. Guests may fill 2 grocery bags of items and visit as often as they wish. We serve an average of 30 guests each weekend and never ask for documentation of any kind. Questions?  Contact us at: stmfreestore@morecommunity.org or call the parish office: 651-227-7669.
