Watertown Urban Mission and Impossible Dream Thrift Store

The Impossible Dream Thrift Store is the largest locally run and operated thrift store in Jefferson County. We offer quality low-priced merchandise that everyone can afford and all proceeds go to support Watertown Urban Mission programs and services. Every dollar spent at the Impossible Dream stays in your community. It is true when we say "Every Good Deal is a Good Deed for Your Community."
Now open seven days a week with its large two-floor showroom at 247 Factory Street in the City of Watertown, the Impossible Dream Thrift Store showcases a tremendous selection and the best prices available on clothing, shoes, books, toys, games, sporting goods, kitchen supplies, small household appliances, furniture and electronics.
Our inventory depends on the generosity of individuals like you and businesses in our community who donate used items and surplus stock. We accept your donations during business hours seven days a week behind our store. If you can’t transport the item, give us a call at 782-0090 and we may be able to arrange a pickup.
So, if you’re getting something new and want to give your stuff a new home for a good cause, or if you’re downsizing to a smaller home, or you’re spring cleaning, or whatever reason you might be clearing out, please think of us.
We are open throughout Factory Street construction! For up-to-date information on the project and its progress, click here: https://h20town.wordpress.com/.

The Watertown Urban Mission strengthens our community by uniting churches, individuals, businesses and organizations to give neighbors in need a hand up to overcome life's challenges.

The Watertown Urban Mission brings more than 45 member churches together with local community-minded organizations, businesses and individuals to help people through difficult times with programs that feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, give shelter to the homeless, visit the imprisoned, give aid to the sick, and more. With generous donor support the Mission helps people rise above their circumstances and in turn, this strengthens our community as a whole.

To serve the community, jointly and ecumenically, in such a way as to make the compassion and reconciling purpose of God felt where ever there is human need.
