Thrift on Woodlawn is a clean, organized thrift store serving the Wichita public with high quality, affordable, second-hand goods. They are a great place to shop AND volunteer. I especially like that they find ways to collaborate with other non-profits and businesses in the Wichita community to serve the public-such as their sewing repair class. I also appreciate that they are a socially minded thrift store donating some of their profits to international development work.

I love the way this store impacts a variety of people. Through local partnerships, folks are being trained in job skills as they work and volunteer there.
Shoppers are given an experience where they get a bargain while shopping in a clean, nice, and friendly atmosphere. And a portion of purchases go to meet needs around the globe. Each donation and purchase is a gift to the world.
I am a board member, but also a regular shopper. I appreciate so much that I am making a difference when I shop at Thrift on Woodlawn.

I was so surprised at how nice the store looked and smelled. The customer service was friendly. I was helping a niece start over with a kitchen set up and found everything she needed at a low price,
