Philadelphia’s largest non-profit thrift store turns sales from yesterday’s treasures into dollars to support local organizations focused on HIV prevention and care.
Philadelphia, PA – Philly AIDS Thrift is pleased to award $300,035 this spring to 27 organizations and programs focused on HIV prevention and care, as well as support for people living with HIV/AIDS in the Delaware Valley. Philadelphia’s largest thrift store and non-profit organization has turned yesterday’s treasures into $3,691,813 over the organization’s 16 years to support Philadelphia regional organizations on the frontline of the HIV/AIDS crisis. This support is more important than ever as non-profits throughout Philadelphia and across the country have been challenged financially during the continued global pandemic. The annual grant program by Philly AIDS Thrift started back in 2014 as another way to serve the community, and it has continued even during the COVID crisis. The next request for grant proposals will take place towards the end of 2022.
