The WRC Thrift Shops have been described as “The best-kept secret of Traverse City.” In the last 20+ years, the Thrift Shops have grown from a modest operation to a critical revenue for the WRC’s mission, while at the same time giving back almost $100,000 to community members in need.
Every month, the Thrift Shops give an estimated $8,000 in clothing and household items to members of our community who need them most. On one Wednesday evening, a young woman knocked on the door at the main office saying she needed a suit for a job interview and wondered if we could help. We said “absolutely” and sent her to the Thrift Shop to select the items she needed – free-of-charge. The Thrift Shops have also provided couches and beds to families who have experienced house fires, and clothes and furnishings to struggling college students.
