Created in 1991 by volunteers to assist in raising funds to help care for the terminally ill, the Hospice of Yuma Thrift Shop has played a major role in assisting Hospice of Yuma to fulfill its mission. When the Thrift Shop first opened, it was run out of a storage room in the main Hospice of Yuma office building. The total revenue for its first year of operations was approximately $14,000.00. As the years passed and thrift shop operations grew, it was given its own space with an extra room to display donated furniture. Its growth over the past two decades is due to hundreds of dedicated Thrift Shop volunteers who put many hours of work into making it successful. Besides the contributions of the volunteers, generous donors from the community have donated used items including clothing and furniture to be resold to the public. The Hospice of Yuma Thrift Shop now provides hundreds of thousands of dollars of support for our charitable care program. The net proceeds generated by the thrift shop are used specifically for this purposed. Its continued success is a testament to our wonderful volunteers and the generosity of the community we call home.
