Get Involved



At Oliver Gospel, we gratefully accept new donations of food, clothing, and other quality products. These goods will be used to directly help those in need. Gently used donations are received at the Oliver Gospel Thrift Store, where all proceeds benefit the work of Oliver Gospel. Donations of any new items can be dropped off at Oliver Gospel's Front Desk, located at 1100 Taylor St. in downtown Columbia (corner of Taylor and Assembly St). Donations of gently used items can be dropped off at 10012 Two Notch Rd. Please drop off donations downtown between 8:30 am-4 pm in order to avoid our busier times.

Have questions? Please give us a call. Downtown: (803) 254-6470 Thrift Store: (803) 865-8292
