CAN A THRIFT STORE IMPACT ONE MILLION LIVES?


Can a thrift store impact one million lives? We believe it can! 

Imagine knowing that your financial gift will impact 1,000,000 lives.

Since its founding in 2001, Impact Thrift has been bringing tangible hope to hundreds of thousands in the Philadelphia region.

Our community of donors, volunteers, employees, shoppers, nonprofit community partners, and neighbors in need make up a vast and thriving ecosystem of hope. 

 

The energy for this system is generated through our five nonprofit retail stores:

Impact Thrift Store Feasterville

Impact Thrift Store Feasterville

  • Feasterville 
  • Norristown
  • Montgomeryville
  • Hatboro
  • Bristol

Each year, well over half a million people visit our stores for great values and a high quality shopping experience. Merchandise is provided by more than 150,000 donors throughout the region. 

 

Household goods and clothing dropped off at these retail stores and 40 strategically located donation sites throughout the region flow into our 60,000-square-foot donation processing center for recycling, re-purposing, or reselling.

Fueled by hundreds of employees, scores of committed volunteers, and thousands of people donating tons of household goods and clothing, the Impact Thrift system gives 30% to 50% of its net proceeds to 15 locally based charities serving some of the most vulnerable people in the Philadelphia metro area. Since 2001, we have given our partner charities more than $2 million.

We feel blessed that our ecosystem of hope touches more than 700,000 lives each year. But the need is great, and we know we can do more. 

We are committed to impacting 1,000,000 lives per year!

Together we can make it happen.

In addition, we respond to requests for assistance for local families facing crises through our Helping Hands program.

In 2015, Helping Hands provided $20,700 in store gift cards, free furniture, and clothing to neighbors in need who were referred by collaborating organizations like the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Team.
