How much does it cost to use the Thrift Shop?
Nothing! The W Thrift Shop clothing is absolutely free for enrolled students, we do ask if you are in the position to, take one and bring one. If you are not in the position to exchange an item, we ask if you would be willing to donate an hour of volunteer time.
When do I have to return the clothing?
Never! After you receive clothing from The W Thrift Shop, it is yours to keep. We do hope that students will pay-it-forward and become future Thrift Shop donors, but there is no requirement to return any items.
How many times can I visit the Thrift Shop? How many items can I take each time?
Students are able to visit freely, but again, we are always looking for volunteers.
