DONATE. SHOP. SUPPORT.
The Arc Makes Cents Thrift Shops are supported by donations of clothing and goods from the community. All proceeds from the sale of donated items support programs and services that enhance the lives of local individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in our community.
These services include case management, recreation, sports training, family services and vocational placement services.
When you shop or donate items, you support The Arc of Atlantic County’s mission of building an inclusive community where everyone has the opportunity to decide how they live, learn, work, and play. With locations in Ventnor and Egg Harbor Township, The Arc’s Thrift Shops offer a great selection of gently used and new clothing, accessories, jewelry, household items, furniture, toys, books, collectibles and more. New inventory arrives daily, so be sure to shop often!
