Hi - Wonderland truly is wonderful and a true non profit.. we are a strong group of staff/volunteers who are often critized by people asking what we give our money to... so allow me to tell you - we have operated for 4 years and each year we give approx $50,000 in clothing vouchers.. Let me just talk of this year along (it is now July.... 2012. We have paid utility bills for families, paid heating bills, given grocery funds, paid funeral costs, paid Section 8 rents and deposits.. had vehicles fixed, loaned vehicles, paid for 3 camps for families... and also given financial support to individuals and families.. as well as gifting many of the items that are donated to us, paying them forward at no cost. Our clothing voucher program is HUGE and other non profits have our vouchers and THEY pass them along when they see the need. Groups like WIC, Families First, Churches, Schools, Seacoast

Lisa Pearson: Principal and Funder of Wonderland Thrift Shop in Exeter, NH. Repsonding to wmur2comcastnet comments! Wonderland Thrift is a 501 (c) Non Profit Organization and as such reports directly to the State and IRS. Annual Reports and figures are all readily available to the public for inspection. First Annual report filing is 2011 as required by State Law. We donate all our profits to local non profits, and support many area families in a variety of ways. For example: OUR YEAR SO FAR!! Wonderland Thrift is proud to say, that with your help, in 2010 we have: - Donated more than $24,000.00 to local charities Donated more than $12,000.00 in clothing vouchers Provided a mobile home to help the homeless Donated furniture and essential items to local families Purchased beds for a family that was sleeping on the floor Passed baby items to Newborns in Need Provided free books to local schools Provided blankets to the SPCA Provided food to local food pantries Paid bills for several local families Helped with vehicle expenses for three families Forwarded clothing to local churches Donated to the Bella Tucker Fund Donated to the Jimmy Fund Donated items for local projects Offered community service projects locally And there will be more……………… Your dollar really does go along way, Wonderland is a non profit and does what it says it does. Each time you purchase or donate here, you are truly making a difference! If we all give a little each day, might there come a day when we no longer need to give at all? Thank you!

Wonderland has been such a blessing to the children I work with at the, Amesbury Child Psych Unit. They have donated hundreds of books to these precious children. Without them I would not have been able to start my little reading program. I also enjoy all the great deals, the service and dollar days.

the idea of the store is a great one. However, I have serious questions about what they actually give out- they list that they gave away $1000 to a charity, but in reality no one can give any information about if it was cash or donated items that they put a dollar amount on. When you ask questions in the shop, you get no answers and are given the run around. Not sure if this place is doing the

One thing I'd also say is that...

This is a great idea - one I am sure will be copied in the area - but the leadership is lacking, the "face" needs much improvement
