The Village Thrift Shop is a resale shop that benefits the mission of The Village Centers by providing additional revenue from sales and by serving as a vocational training site for our Villagers and for other organizations. 100% of the proceeds from the Thrift Shop go directly toward supporting our programs and services. Our Villagers and individuals with IDD affiliated with partner organizations train or work in the thrift shop under the supervision of a job coach sorting clothes and items, unloading donated items, cleaning, and other important tasks.
