Sunshine Thrift Store Florida
Sunshine Thrift Stores, Inc is a Florida based for-profit corporation formed in 1982 to assist local charitable organizations with their fundraising efforts. To help raise funding and awareness, organizations can outsource a clothing and household donation program with a trusted
and registered community partner. By becoming the exclusive purchaser of clothing and other household donations the charitable organization receives, Sunshine Thrift Stores is able to supply local jobs to individuals, keep useable items from entering the landfill, and provide clean serviceable clothing and other needed items to the immediate community at deeply discounted prices. This relationship allows for the charitable organization to focus on their core fundraising mission and allow Sunshine to focus on operating for-profit retail outlets, all while shielding the organization from any cost or risks associated with operating the program. The for-profit nature allows for reinvestment into the program and professional representation of the organization. The monies received from the sale to the thrift stores assist the social service organization in the implementation of programs that may have otherwise been unattainable. These programs are also promoted though the interactions of the thrift stores and the public.
