    Care & Share Thrift Shoppes announced their 2019 donation to Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at a special Super Star Breakfast.  Thanks to generous donors, energetic shoppers and enthusiastic volunteers, Care & Share announced they are the first independent, non-profit, thrift store to donate over One Million Dollars to charity in a calendar year

    Volunteers contribute to the heartbeat of Care & Share!  At this breakfast, we celebrated an elite group we refer to as the “Super Stars”. These 93 special volunteers each donated between 300 - 1,700 hours in 2019, contributing to over 109,000 volunteer hours in 2019.  Care & Share is thankful for the support of all of our volunteers. 

    Since 1975, Care & Share has donated over $19 million to MCC (mcc.org)

    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.
