Thanks to community members like you, our thrift store is thriving. But our dream from the beginning was always to be more than a store.
That dream is baked right into our mission statement: “Invest our proceeds into living wage jobs and ultimately grants to strengthen and accelerate neighborhood organizations and initiatives”. After only two years in business, we’re proud to be able to realize that part of our mission even sooner than we planned.
Second Harvest’s 2022 Community Development Grant Recipients
