The Barn


The Barn is a volunteer-run thrift shop by Cornerstone Community Services. It aims to assist the poor and underprivileged by making consumer goods available to them at affordable prices. 

Once a month, The Barn partners Social Service Agencies and goes out to selected housing estates to offer their products to those in need. 

All stocks are donated by members of the public.

Please donate only during operating hours.


The Barn has outlets in Katong, Ang Mo Kio and Jurong. See here for details.

You can also buy from them on their Carousell Page.
