  • Thanks to generous donations, Care & Share Thrift Shoppes has provided our communities with beautiful, gently used clothing for over 48 years. Our volunteers and staff work hard to present our customers with nice clothing, shoes and accessories for all members of your family.

    Since the Covid pandemic, we have seen a shift in our business operation. For various reasons some volunteers are no longer able to serve in the same manner or quantity as they did previously. While volunteers remain the backbone of our organization, it has been necessary to expand our paid staff levels to make up for the approximate one-third drop in volunteer time. Along with increased levels of paid staff, we have experienced rapidly rising costs in many other areas of our business, as you likely have experienced in your own household.

    After holding off as long as we could, and with careful consideration, we have determined it necessary to increase our prices of clothing. This will be the first time we have increased prices across the board in the Clothing Shoppe in over 10 years. The changes will be taking effect during the month of January.

    We value the relationship we have with you, our customers. We remain committed to serving our community. We continue to believe that you will find our selection, pricing and service to be among the very best. Your purchases provide support for many others both locally and globally through MCC. Thank you for shopping, donating and volunteering at Care & Share Thrift Shoppes!

    Care & Share Thrift Shoppes is now a Certified Autism Center™, designated by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). To earn the designation, staff have completed autism training and certification in order to better understand and work with autistic visitors and supporters.

    “At Care & Share, we are glad you are our neighbor! We want to be at our best to welcome you to shop, donate and volunteer," said Sarah Bergin, Executive Director. "After going through the certification process, our staff is now prepared with the knowledge that customers, donors, and volunteers are all differently abled. By welcoming everyone, our organization is stronger.”

    In addition to a vibrant volunteer program, Care & Share also works with over 35 organizations as volunteers fine-tune skills in areas like receiving and processing donations, customer service, and social skills. The Shoppes accommodate weekly to daily volunteer opportunities for individuals of all different abilities.

    “IBCCES is excited to announce the designation of Care & Share Thrift Shoppes to show that organizations of all types can benefit from training and certification to enhance the customer and community experience,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.
