The Ridgefield Thrift Shop was recently awarded the Chamber of Commerce’s Ridgefield Business of the Year, and as it continues to grow in its new space on Governor Street, it hasn’t slowed down in its mission of supporting local nonprofit organizations. This year the Thrift Shop has given a quarter-million dollars to area organizations.

Meals on Wheels received a $5,000 grant, more than double the amount of previous years. “The Thrift Shop has been a longtime supporter of Meals on Wheels, and we are so happy to see how successful they’ve been in their new location,” said Dean Miller, president and board chair.
