Thrift Shop: A reception for our recipients

The Thrift Shop held a reception to celebrate our grant recipients. It was a time for like-minded organizations and individuals to get to know each other and see and understand the scope of the Thrift Shop and meet our volunteers. We encourage our grant recipients to encourage their members and friends to shop and donate at the Thrift Shop — the broader our reach, the deeper our grant pool. The Thrift Shop donated over $250,000 to 54 local non-profits this year; the list of recipients is available on our website,

Many local businesses helped support the reception. A special thank-you to our new neighbor, Ancona’s Wines & Liquors, who provided the wine for the evening. Thanks also to 850 Degrees Pizza, Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe, Genoa Deli, Jersey Mike’s, Milillo Farms, Parma Market, Planet Pizza, Stop & Shop, and What’s Cooking. These businesses continuously donate to local nonprofits — please show your support and shop local.

May is red, white and blue at the Thrift Shop! Time to get ready for Memorial Day celebrations and picnics. Hope to see you soon at 21B Governor Street, Monday through Friday from 12 to 4 and special Saturday hours through May from 10 to 4!
