Community In the Time of COVID-19
The Good Cheer team is grateful, humbled and inspired by the support that has sustained and lifted us during the recent months. Being able to keep the Food Bank open 5 days a week feels as much a gift to us as to our incredible community.
Our Food Bank will continue operating through our Shopping List system, Monday thru Friday, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Good Cheer Thrift Stores are open the following days and times:
Clinton’s Good Cheer Thrift Store at Ken’s Korner is open Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from Noon to 5 p.m.
Langley’s Good Cheer Thrift Store is open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from Noon to 5 p.m.
The Good Cheer Donation Center in Bayview is open Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. or until our storage capacity for that day has been reached.
Thank you for understanding.
We suggest arriving early, request that all clothing be in plastic garbage bags and all general items be in non-taped stackable boxes. Please remember that donated items must be in sell-able condition and will be inspected before we can accept. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but you can expect short delays as our crew processes items.
Masks are required.
See our Donate page for item donation details.
Good Cheer’s eBay store is still going strong!
We’ll have new items posted daily and can arrange for either pick up or free local delivery on items over $50.

Good Cheer stands ready to help our community.
Good Cheer’s innovative Food Bank is at the core of our mission.
We provide healthful food — including fresh locally-grown produce — to an average of 850 families each month. We need your ongoing support.
Our popular Thrift Stores provide affordable “pre-owned” merchandise in convenient locations.
Join us for enjoyable bargain hunting among friends. Your purchases are the greatest part of our financial support.
We are very proud of the generous support we receive from our community.
Our history… Good Cheer has been in the business of providing quality food to our clients, and quality merchandise to our thrift store customers, for decades. Read more about our proud history here…
Our today… Good Cheer sees partnerships with our community as keys to our ongoing success. A fine example of that effort has been our work to develop a network of community partners to provide healthful, locally-grown produce for our food bank clients. We’ve been working since 2008 with the South Whidbey School District, and subsequently with Whidbey Island farmers, agriculture apprentices, gleaners, and hundreds of volunteers eager to get their hands dirty for a good cause. As a result, in recent years we’ve been able to provide thousands of pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables in our Food Bank each year.
Our Thrift Stores continue to attract eager customers from Whidbey Island, and from far-flung places.
Our volunteers continue to inspire us with their energy.
Our donors — individuals and corporate sponsors – continue their generous support.
Our tomorrow... All of us at Good Cheer look forward to a bright future, continuing our work with our community. Please be a part of it today!
