Thrift Shop


In November 2003, the Safe Haven Thrift Shop became a program of Safe Haven. The Thrift Shop is managed by Susan McNeil with Jennifer Holt and Carol Chaves as assistant managers. The Shop is staffed by over 40 dedicated volunteers.

The Thrift Shop relies on volunteers to operate. Volunteers work in three-hour shifts from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. or from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Volunteers are needed to sort & price items, merchandising and sales.


“Volunteering at the Thrift Shop is a great way to make friends, get bargains and help a good cause.”


All proceeds from the Shop support the programs of Safe Haven of Greater Waterbury.
