Welcome to Our Thrift Shoppe!
Saint_John's Thrift Shoppe is a fun shopping destination located on the Lower Level of the Central Tower, whose sales support annual scholarship awards for qualified Saint_John's employee students. SurprisingFindings, our online Etsy shop, is another source of revenue for this worthy cause. Since its opening in 2011, the Thrift Shoppe sales have generated $128,000 in scholarship awards.
Our volunteer-run store welcomes donations of gently-used household items, jewelry, furniture and vintage collectibles. You may leave items at either Resident Service desk, or call a Resident Service Specialist to arrange for pick-up. Receipts for tax purposes are available. Even Saint_John's donates used appliances, cabinets from refurbished apartments, and carpet remnants to support the effort. We are deeply grateful to all involved in this generous and rewarding endeavor.
Thrift Shoppe Hours:
» Mondays: 10:00 a.m. to Noon
» Wednesdays: 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
» Fridays: 10:00 a.m. to Noon
Also, make sure you check out SurpriseFindings, our online Etsy site for special items.
Employee Scholarship Award Program
For 34 years, Saint John’s has offered financial support to student employees for their personal education costs. Our Scholarship Award Program provides qualified staff help in advancing their career path. In August 2018, twelve employees shared a pool of $18,000! The funds were raised from revenue of the Thrift Shoppe as well as earnings from the Scholarship Endowment Fund. Each award directly helped to offset the cost of tuition, books, laptops, and/or living expenses as these individuals strive to balance academics, work and their personal lives.
Your caring partnership with Saint_John's makes a profound difference in their ability to reach for their dreams, and we thank you with all our hearts.
