Thrift Shop Update

The thrift shop was a major source of funding for our philanthropic programs.  We are proud of the reputation we earned as one of the best, friendliest, and cleanest thrift shops in the Coachella Valley.

As you may know, we closed our physical location in 2021, but we are exploring lots of other ways to bring fabulous treasures to you.  So be sure to check back for updates!
