NOVA Thrift Shop celebrates 20 years, requests donations

Posted

The Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA) Thrift Shop, located at 2116 Broad Street in Perkasie, is celebrating its 20th birthday and invites the community to join in the celebration.
In honor of this special milestone, NOVA is asking members of the community to donate 20 items. NOVA Thrift Shop opened in 2001 and moved to its current location in 2016. In addition to being a resource for gently used fashion and home items, proceeds from the shop support NOVA’s work as Bucks County’s comprehensive victim services agency.
It is one of the agency’s largest sources of revenue, surpassed only by funding from the federal and state governments. Last year, NOVA Thrift Shop raised $1.1 million and during its 20 years of existence, it has raised over $4.6 million.

“The thrift shop is more than a treasure trove of bargains,” said Angela McGettigan, NOVA’s director of community relations and development. “It helps us in our mission to eliminate violence and support and empower victims of serious crime in Bucks County. Whether you make a donation or buy an item, it helps us to help others.”
NOVA Thrift Shop’s work would not be possible without the help of volunteers, who range from their teens to their 90s. Additional volunteers and donations are always needed. For information about the NOVA Thrift Shop, visit novabucks.org/thriftshop.
