Some exciting news from our friends at San Francisco Aid for Animals: They are now on the charity roster of Community Thrift! That means you can donate furniture, clothes, books, etc. to Community Thrift AND shop for items there (code 44) – all to benefit SFAfA.
Learn about what type of donations are accepted and get directions to the Donate Door here (it can be a little tricky to find): www.communitythriftsf.org/donate
Our own Dr. Alan Stewart serves as program chair for SFAfA, and we are happy to help get the word out about how to support this group’s important work.
About Community Thrift (via www.communitythriftsf.org)
In 1982, the San Francisco Tavern Guild Foundation, Inc. founded the Community Thrift Store, a non-profit organization, to help local charities. We have grown to include over 200 non-profit organizations that we refer to as partners. All partners must be a project of, or registered with, the IRS as a 501-(c)(3). Supporters of these charities donate second hand items to Community Thrift. They specify the charity they would like the items to benefit at the time of donation. We then sell the items and distribute the funds on a quarterly basis minus operation costs. Community Thrift is staffed with a combination of employees, volunteers and community service workers.
