Kennedy Center thrift shop gets a $25k donation

The New and Nearly New Thrift Shop received a $25,000 donation to help. The shop is operated by The Kennedy Center Auxilary.

“This substantial donation from The Kennedy Center Auxiliary will support programs that receive little or no state funding,” said Martin D. Schwartz of Trumbull, president and CEO of the center. “These vital services directly benefit people with disabilities of all ages as well as their families.”

The New and Nearly New Thrift Shop, located at 2323 Barnum Avenue, Stratford, sells men’s and women’s clothing, shoes and accessories. Small household furniture and accessories also are available, plus weekly specials.

Now is a great time of year to clean out your closets while helping others in need. Donated items needed include: pots/pans, dishes, glassware, knickknacks, lamps, small occasional tables, costume jewelry, shoes, purses and clean and usable men’s and women’s clothing. The shop does not accept electronics, books or children’s clothing.

Donations to the New and Nearly New Thrift Shop are tax deductible and accepted daily. Retail sales directly benefit The Kennedy Center.

Additional volunteers are always needed in the shop. Interested individuals may contact Carol Karpovich of Fairfield at 203-377-5669 during operating hours. During the summer, the store is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
