Savers Thrift Stores | Good deeds. Great deals.


The Epilepsy Foundation has become a partner to the 'Savers' stores.  In our region employees at three stores have selected to support epilepsy: Berkeley, Dublin and Vacaville.  When you donate your used goods to Savers, they donate to the Epilepsy Foundation based on the total weight of the items donated. Bring your donations to a store or call 855-336-0212 to schedule a pickup. Each month Savers holds a sale and our volunteers are invited to greet customers and distribute flyers. Check out the first sale coming up on Saturday and Sunday, March 7-8. Contact irene@epilepsynorcal.org to sign-up as a volunteer.
