The Nicola Valley Health Care Auxiliary is a registered non-profit society and charitable organization, as well as a member of the British Columbia Association of Health Care Auxiliaries. The Auxiliary is comprised of dedicated volunteers with a vision to assist the betterment of health care within our community.
Our Thrift Shop is our main fundraiser today. Staffed by volunteers, the Thrift Shop is open Tuesday to Saturday. We provide a full service to the community — we receive and sort items that are donated and re-sell them to customers at the Thrift Shop.
Funds raised at the Thrift Shop support health care needs within our community. Without your support at the Thrift Shop, the work of the Auxiliary wouldn’t be possible. We thank you!
Furniture may be accepted with a volunteer’s approval
Records, tapes, CDs, videos, DVDs
Radios, stereos, CD players, speakers, DVD and VCR players

Please note that the Nicola Valley Health Care Auxiliary will be closed for renovations starting November 16, 2019. The plan is to reopen the first week of December. Please check back for exact dates. We can't wait to show you our new & improved shop!
Please note that the list of items the Thrift Shop can accept may change over time to accommodate the Thrift Shop's needs. There are some items that the Thrift Shop cannot accept for various reasons, including safety and limited space. This includes: large appliances, televisions, food, mattresses and box springs, weapons and explosives, construction materials, and flammable products. If in doubt, please call us during shop hours to clarify acceptability of items at 250-378-9100.
Please do not dump unacceptable items, such as unapproved furniture or large appliances, outside the Thrift Shop. Unusable items that are left outside the Thrift Shop have to be taken to the transfer station in Lower Nicola, therefore placing an unnecessary financial burden on the Thrift Shop. This takes away much needed resources from the Auxiliary and reduces the funds we can contribute to health care within our community.
