Our $100 Million in 10 Years Goal
It is safe to say our team is passionate. We believe in the charity partners we serve and making a difference in the communities we live in. They are the reason we are motivated by our goal to donate $100 million to our charity partners over 10 years. We aren’t there yet, but we’re growing closer every year. It’s why we believe in putting the customer first since they are the reason we employ over 2,200 people across the South from drivers to retail associates and managers. And it’s why we work so hard to keep more than 45 million pounds of donatable goods out of landfills each year. We believe these goals and more are possible because of our amazing shoppers, donors and team members.
Founded in 1984, America’s Thrift Stores is a for-profit company that supports numerous children’s health and addiction recovery charities. A portion of our net profits is contributed to these regional and national charities. This funding enables these organizations to carry out their charitable works. America’s Thrift Stores pays federal, state and local taxes and receives no government funding. We provide over 1,200 jobs, as well as pay all of our operating expenses such as rent and utilities. This allows us to support the local community while providing quality products that everyone can afford.
Local Donations, Local Impact
America’s Thrift Stores relies on the generous donations of the local community, to collect used clothing and household items. We resell those items back to the community and share our profits with our charities, providing vital funding to help them improve lives affected by substance abuse, and assist children with illnesses.
