Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Cancer Connection's Thrift Shop will host a new event for Valley Gives Day from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on May 2.

"Our Eclectic Valley: A (Re)Fashion Show". The show will include refreshments and music. It will be held at the Cancer Connection Thrift Shop at 375 South Street in Northampton, with special extended shopping hours from 10 AM to 7 PM for Valley Gives Day!

What is (re)fashion? According to store manager, Nancy Charbonneau Case, “It's refashion, because we're a thrift shop (resale) and the clothing is, in a sense, recycled. In some cases, it's refashioned into something different from its original intended use, like a vintage lace tablecloth used as a scarf.”

Donations can be made at Cancer Connection’s information table at the Thrift Shop on May 2nd. We will hang a star for each donation made in honor of someone who has been touched by cancer.

Valley Gives is a 24-hour giving day that helps nonprofits throughout the Pioneer Valley raise needed funds to support their missions, hosted by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts. Valley Gives donors play a key part in supporting the free programs and services for people dealing with cancer and their loved ones that are at the heart of Cancer Connection. Donations can be made online (beginning now!) at Valley-Gives.org .

With over 1,100 active participants and ever-increasing demand for our counseling, support groups, integrative therapies, classes and workshops, we want to ensure that the focus of our nonprofit center remains on programming and strategic fundraising to expand our vision rather than on fundraising year after year for our basic operating budget.


The solution? A thrift shop that will bring in a stable and consistent income while offering the community a meaningful community service, a “green” business, an indulgence for the fashionistas in our midst, a solution to overstuffed closets and basements, and a fun opportunity for our volunteers.


Our Cancer Connection Thrift Shop at 375 South Street is in a large, open, sunny space offering high-quality, gently used fashions for women and men, jewelry, home goods and books at affordable prices. It is a well traveled area with convenient parking. A knowledgeable, customer-friendly staff led by Nancy, our professional manager, and a cadre of devoted volunteers will greet you.


Our goal is to have a tremendous resource that will allow us to expand our programming and bolster our long-term financial stability as a nonprofit in an era when charities compete for limited grants and donations.


We gratefully accept donations on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays during our hours of operation. Please call in advance if you are traveling a distance, or if you have a particularly large amount of donations. Thank you for your generosity!


We are able to accept donations of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, vintage clothing, shoes, housewares, jewelry, home decor, antiques, small furniture, art & more. More details click here. 100% of profits will go to Cancer Connection.
