The Care & Share Thrift Shoppe started as one thrift shoppe in 1975. Leadership, contributions and a strong volunteer commitment was all provided by surrounding churches from the Franconia Mennonite Conference, Eastern District Conference and Brethren In Christ Churches.
The Care & Share Thrift Shoppe is an independent non-profit organization, governed by a Board of Directors. We are a part of the Mennonite Central Committee Thrift Shop Network, a bi-national group of shops that support Mennonite Central Committee.
The dollars you spend at Care & Share Thrift Shoppe will impact thousands of lives. Shop our shoppes for quality used items at a great price. Your purchase of these goods becomes your ‘gift to the world’ through Mennonite Central Committee. Since our beginnings, we have donated over 21 million dollars to Mennonite Central Committee.
Our Vision Statement
To make a difference in people’s lives in the name of Christ by becoming the thrift destination of choice
To care for others and share our faith and resources locally and globally through Mennonite Central Committee in the name of Christ
Our logo is a combination of a shopping bag and the Mennonite Central Committee's (MCC) symbol of the cross and the dove. This combination is a statement to show that your purchases here at our shoppes benefit those MCC serves in North America and around the world.
The MCC symbol expresses visually their mission. The cross and dove are presented in a dynamic, interactive relationship in which the cross empties into compassionate action. The hard forms of the cross yield to the flowing forms of the dove. The composite form is open and embracing.
