I donated an item for this year's auction and was impressed by how committed their volunteers were. I am glad I helped them and look forward to hearing more about them.

I send them a check every year for their holiday appeal. I read their newsletter and tell my friends about them because they do important work.

While I very much admire the work Fair Tide does in the community in the area of homelessness prevention and transitional housing, I appreciate the Fair Tide Thrift Store. The Fair Tide Store does a number of things for the community including act as a resource for recycling, a revenue source for Fair Tide's programmatic work, and an outlet for all sorts of merchandise priced rigtht. I feel good knowing that the items I donate to the Fair Tide Thrift Store benefit the community in so many different ways.

As a donor I appreciate the valuable community service that Fair Tide offers. They go above and beyond the "handout" - instead they offer a helping hand which is infinitely more valuable. They help families get back on their feet, enabling them to once again become productive members of the community.
