Caroline’s Non Profit Thrift Shop is located in Aptos Village. The shop was founded in 2010 by Christina Licker, who continues to work as the director today. Their primary mission is to raise funds for Santa Cruz County non-profits that have programs and/or services for children with special medical, developmental, or psychological needs.
The majority of the funding from Caroline’s Non Profit Thrift Shop goes to their “core four” charities:
- Children’s Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition
- Hospice of Santa Cruz County
- Jacob’s Heart
- SPIN (Special Parents Information Network)
In just over four years, Caroline’s Non Profit Thrift Shop has donated over $600,000 for these and other worthy causes.
The shop is staffed by approximately 70 volunteers and is loaded with unique, high-quality, and rare items that have been donated by families near and far. They have a little bit of everything: dishes, linens, children’s clothing, toys, sporting goods, ladies clothing, accessories, a few choice items for men, and furniture, art and lighting.
