Note from Tony: This is one of my favorite charities. If I have clothes, equipment, books, old porn, whatever, I don't hand it away to other folks - I just drop it off at Auntie Helen's!
After 23 years in the same location serving thousands of clients, we are moving two blocks up 30th Street to better serve our community.
4127 30th St. San Diego, CA 92104
Auntie Helen's is THRILLED to open our new Thrift Store and HIV/AIDS Laundry Service at 4127 30th Street (30th & Polk)!
We have a brand new look, a brand new vibe, yet the same dedication and cheerful, smiling service we've provided to thousands of clients for decades!
