What a Great Year at Good Stuff Thrift
Good Stuff Gives $1,000,000 to its Charities
What a great year it has been at Good Stuff Thrift! We have been so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing employees, board members, volunteers, donors, customers, supporters, and of course such an amazing community. It is because of you that we have been able to donate a record-breaking $1,000,000 to our charities this year! Good Stuff Thrift has donated a grand total of $5,000,000 to its charities.
Words cannot express how grateful we are to be able to have accomplished this goal. We continue to strive to give more every year and are so thankful to each and every one of you who supports Good Stuff Thrift and its mission.

Elf on the Shelf
The elves were up to no good this year! They all escaped and found a place to hide at each of our four stores. They hid in extra tricky hiding places this year, so our customers really had to keep an eye out for them. They hid in different places every day just to keep us all on our toes!
Thank you to everyone who helped find these silly elves! We know it wasn’t easy, but every time one was found, that lucky customer got $5 off their purchase that day! If it weren’t for you, the elves might not have made it back to the North Pole in time for Christmas to help Santa! Phew…that was a close one!
Take a look at some of the places we found these little troublemakers!
Carson Simpson Farms
One of Good Stuff Thrift’s most recent partnerships is with Carson Simpson Farm. At Carson Simpson Farm, the goal is to utilize their 60+ acres to create spaces for kids to connect with each other, with God, and with nature.
“[The] property includes woods, a creek, pavilions, a pool, sports fields, playgrounds, and indoor spaces. Each day is packed with scheduled activities designed to encourage building friendships and lasting memories. Campers get a chance to experience a wide variety of special interests, ranging from art and music to athletic games and hikes in the woods. With something for everyone, each camper has a chance to shine or learn new skills.
Mission – To glorify God and show the love of Christ to children.
Vision: That the children are convinced of God’s love for them and each staff member puts Christ first in their lives and reflects Christ’s love in all they do.
Values: Faith, community, and safety.
At Carson Simpson Farm, campers learn about God in a welcoming and safe environment.
[They] present Bible stories in a relatable and age-appropriate way, and counselors lead follow-up discussions with their groups. Campers are coached to listen respectfully while hearing new ideas and to consider how God’s love can impact their lives. The staff prays over their campers and seek to demonstrate Christ’s love through camp experiences.”

Carson Simpson Farm held a Winter Wonderland event on December 9th this year! This community event featured crafts, camp games, a bonfire, an ugly Christmas sweater contest, carols, a life- size nativity for photos, and a Tree lighting!
In addition to this amazing event, they also asked the community to bring warm clothing donations to give to Good Stuff Thrift!
