The Leeward Charitable Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) corporation operating charitable thrift stores in several New England Communities.
Our mission is to recycle, reuse and renew for charity. Our objective is to feed, clothe and comfort our neighbours in need. Through the generous donations of the community, The Leeward Charitable Foundation turns unwanted/surplus clothing, furniture and household items into funds for worthy local charities.
We are a unique retailer, valuable recycler and sustainable source of critical funding for important local charities
"Many people find it difficult to donate money, but nearly everyone has a box of perfectly good things they no longer need or want. We turn those items into funds to help those most in need.”
Rob Werner, President, The Leeward Charitable Foundation
