Gift and Thrift, Inc. is a nonprofit organization. We are committed to Christian faith in action, offering a friendly, caring presence in the community while addressing the stewardship of our environment and supporting the primary goals of Mennonite Central Committee. Harrisonburg Gift and Thrift consists of three stores: Gift and Thrift accepts donations of clothing, household goods and furniture that are processed for sale to the general public or recycled Booksavers of Virginia accepts donations of books, audiovisuals and educational materials that are processed and sold on the internet, through the Thrift shop or recycled Artisans’ Hope buys and markets fairly traded handicrafts and food items to provide a living wage for unemployed or underemployed persons around the world
Gift and Thrift, Inc. provides a place for community members to drop off used items including books, furniture, clothing, electronics and other household items instead of putting them in the landfill.
Our volunteers sort, clean, and repair these items and place them in our retail area or on-line for resale. Much of what we cannot use we recycle.
