The donations picked up by AMVETS are distributed to thrift stores throughout the United States. Once at thrift stores, items are priced and sold. The profits from these sales allow the AMVETS National Service Foundation to provide programs that benefit veterans.
AMVETS sorts through the items donated and keeps good-quality merchandise to be sold in AMVET thrift stores. All other items are sold to other thrift stores. AMVET thrift stores are located throughout the country, are open to the general public and offer quality used clothing, household goods and toys at reasonable prices. These stores provide a service to the community as well as resources for veterans.
