Thrift Stores

Items that wouldn’t be suitable to give to local charities or over seas charities are sent to local thrift stores where the purchase of these goods helps to provide meaningful jobs and allows others to buy goods at discount prices.

In 2012 United Volunteers created 66 local jobs and also paid out $40,000 of utility bills, rent payments and direct aid.
