All About Us
Philadelphia AIDS Thrift is incorporated in Pennsylvania as a non-profit business. We are also a federally recognized 501c3 tax-exempt charitable organization (thanks IRS!). Our mission is to sell the lovely, useful and interesting stuff generous people donate to our thrift store and then distribute the proceeds to local organizations involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Our current main beneficiary is the AIDS Fund. The AIDS Fund distributes money to twenty-nine AIDS agencies in the five county Philadelphia region. They pass on the money we give them every month with NO administrative costs taken out. They also organize the Philadelphia AIDS Walk every October and the monthly Gay Bingo fundraiser throughout the year. Thanks, AIDS Fund!
In addition to our cash contributions, Philly AIDS Thrift provides free store vouchers to Pilly area HIV/Aids service providers for distribution to clients in need of clothing assistance and household necessities. Thanks to the many local organizations that partner with us in this effort.
We are committed to making a difference in the lives of people affected by HIV/AIDS. And to creating a store that serves this mission and is at the same time a good place to shop and fun place to be.
If you'd like to be a part of all this, there are many ways you can help.
We are in need of donations of all sorts. Basically, any re-sellable item in good shape will be welcomed, including : clothing, housewares, furniture, electronics, books, records, artwork and mystery tschotchkes. Any time the store is open we will gladly accept your donations.
We would not be able to run the store without our VOLUNTEERS, so if you have spare time and would like to join us please email us with "Volunteer" in the subject line. Or call us at 215.922.3186 and leave your info in the volunteer voice-mailbox. Either way, we will contact you ASAP.
And last but most we need Shoppers!
We Look Forward to Seeing You Soon!

PS: We hope you'll take a moment to click on the links for FightAIDS@Home and BOINC (aka Rosetta@HOME) on the upper right of this page. These are two excellent research programs that harness the spare power of tens of thousands of individual computers to do important research for AIDS medicines and vaccines. It only takes minutes to download either of these programs, and they run in the background of your system while you are doing other work or while your computer is idle. Why not add your computer to the fight?
