The DCA Thrift Shop was founded in 1931 to supply clothing and food to families in need, and offer employment for women during the Depression. Workers washed and mended donated clothing and repaired household articles, which were then sold at very low prices. Today’s Thrift Shop is run by volunteers, continuing the tradition of helping the community.
