Bambino Thrift Shop Mission

Bambino Thrift ShopAbout Bambino Thrift ShopFollowing a tradition started in 1928, the Bambino Thrift Shop is a non-profit business operating solely for the benefit of UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland. The shop has been at its College Avenue location since 1994.

When you donate and/or make purchases, you will know you are benefitting the children who rely on UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland for their care.

The shop is operated by volunteers, many of whom are from Children’s Hospital auxiliary groups called Branches.
