Surprise gave way to elation when the Ridgefield Thrift Shop granted $10,000 to Founders Hall to support its hobby and sports programs.  

“We were blown away by the amount,” said Cindy Nesbitt, development director at Founders Hall.  

The Thrift Shop has consistently supported Founders Hall, but with an increase in sales and donations at its new location, it increased its donation to Founders Hall fivefold.

“What an amazing organization,” said Founders Hall Executive Director Grace Weber of the Thrift Shop, which is staffed entirely by volunteers and donates all proceeds to community not-for-profits.
