LISTEN is taking a number of steps to help keep our community safe during the COVID-19 crisis while continuing to meet the critical needs of Upper Valley individuals and families. One of these actions was to temporarily close our four thrift stores on March 17 to encourage social distancing.
This has had a significant and immediate impact on our agency, our employees, our clients, and the community. Without any revenue from our stores, we are completely reliant on the generosity of the community to continue to serve others.
We now urgently need your help to continue providing vital services.
Can you donate online today?
Today, LISTEN’s immediate focus is two-fold: 1) We are coordinating services for those that come to us for help, and 2) We are ensuring food is available at our pantry in Lebanon and at the community dinner hall in White River Junction. We will also continue to connect those in most need with other helpful resources in the region.
THANK YOU. A donation to LISTEN is an investment in the future of our community.

Given the closure of LISTEN’s thrift stores on March 17 due the COVID-19 emergency, LISTEN is not able to accept any donations of gently-used items at our Lebanon, Canaan, or White River Junction locations. Due to safety precautions, you can imagine it is very risky for our staff to process your generous drop offs.
We greatly appreciate everyone’s desire to share those items you no longer need, and we encourage you to put them aside for us until we are able to
re-open. Your donations will be vital to continuing LISTEN’s mission to provide services to address local food insecurity, ensure neighbors have electricity and heating fuel, provide youth with opportunities to go to summer camp, and much, much more.
LISTEN is proud to serve as the largest resource in the region where everyone is welcome and can purchase quality, affordable second-hand items. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Since 1972, LISTEN has been generously supporting individuals and families in their efforts to achieve and maintain successful independence. The LISTEN Thrift Stores have made our programs possible for countless Upper Valley residents.
Our four stores offer huge selections of adult and children's clothing, housewares, furniture, books, toys and more at great values. Everyone is welcome to shop. Quality items are sold below market prices and the revenues generate and support LISTEN’s Community Services and our Programs.
