Rated with 5 stars on Google, the FODAC Community Thrift Store is a large facility tucked away in the Tucker/Stone Mountain area.  We offer our customers a large variety of new and gently used furniture, computers, clothing, household goods, jewelry, books and music – and so much more at really low prices!

 

We frequently have new items donated from famous makers. Our inventory changes daily, offering our customers many bargains each day.

 

When you shop with us you are supporting FODAC’s mission of providing home medical equipment to those in need for little or no cost.  100% of proceeds support our goal to increased mobility and self-sufficiency for people with disabilities whether from illness, injury, disorder or age.

OUR STORY

FODAC began as a faith-based community project in the 1980s. The founder Ed Butchart began to collect used wheelchairs and repair them in his home garage to distribute to those in need. In 1986, FODAC was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit

 

Today we occupy a 65,000 square foot facility which includes the thrift store.  Each year more than 8,000 home medical equipment (HME) items are provided to people with mobility challenges at little to no cost. Items include wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds, bathing aides, and pediatric equipment.

 

FODAC is the primary source of reused HME in Georgia when people are unable to get their healthcare needs met through traditional avenues. Our model is simple: we collect used equipment, sanitize and refurbish it, and then redistribute to those in need.   

 

*Currently our store staff is observing all the COVID-19 requirements – social distancing and face masks, and a plexiglass barrier at the front counter provides additional protection. Shoppers are required to wear face masks in the store as well, practice social distancing, and aisles are marked for one direction only.
