Value Village is not only a great place to find gently used goods at a fair price but also a place to donate goods that go back into the community in more ways than one. Non-profit organizations donate to Value Village, which in turn, pays the organizations for their donations. The donated goods are then sorted and those of the highest quality are placed in the stores. There, shoppers can find one-of-a-kind products at reasonable prices, all while jobs in the community are created in the process. And there’s a Value Village right in the East Village on 1820 E Hastings Street. Come check out the store whether it be to find school supplies, costumes, or just to find a bargain. You can visit their website here.
