The Ridgefield Thrift Shop’s mission is to support local nonprofit organizations through recycling, repurposing and reselling generously donated goods and to provide the opportunity to purchase affordable merchandise at our Shop. In 2019, the Ridgefield Thrift Shop gave grants to more than 70 local nonprofit organizations. There are three elements to our success — our donors, our customers, and our 100 percent volunteer staff.
