Give your pre-loved stuff a 'Second Chance'

Second Chance shop

 Posted on Oct 16, 2019

At the beginning of November, KAUST will be opening “Second Chance”; a thrift shop where community members can donate or buy for a small price secondhand items. Proceeds from the sale of items will go towards helping our local communities. The shop will be located in the three first arcades adjacent to the King Abdullah Mosque.

We are therefore looking for your donations of pre-loved items for the grand opening!

Bring your items to 'Second Chance' (see map) and put them in the containers labelled “thrift shop”. We are looking for: kitchenware, books, small appliances, toys, bicycles, dvd’s, board games, jewelry, gardening tools, children/baby clothing, etc. - basically everything except adult clothing!

Larger items can be collected at your location. Please call 054 392 9231 for more information or email us at

We need volunteers!

We need community members above the age of 16 to volunteer for general help in the thrift shop. If you wish to volunteer, please send an email to We will contact you with further details.
