The Soho Thrift Shop is already accepting housewares and clothing donations at Housing Works’ popular Housing Works Bookstore Café next door at 126 Crosby St. Donations are the backbone of Housing Works Thrift Shops, so all New Yorkers are strongly encouraged to donate items at any location.
The new Soho location brings the total number of Housing Works Thrift Shops to nine—plus online shopping available at Shophousingworks.com. Last month, Housing Works opened a store at 72 Warren St. in Tribeca.
“The new Soho Housing Works will bring Housing Works Thrift Shops to one of the most famous shopping neighborhoods in the world and help us spread awareness of our mission to fight AIDS to a vastly larger group of people,” said Richard Vorisek, president of Housing Works Thrift Shops.
All profits from Housing Works Thrift Shops go to Housing Works’ lifesaving services for homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS. Those services include housing, medical care, meals, job training and drug treatment programs. Like Housing Works’ other locations, the Soho store will provide jobs for participants in Housing Works job training program for people living with HIV and AIDS.
ABOUT HOUSING WORKS: Housing Works is the largest community-based AIDS service organization in the United States, as well as the nation’s largest minority-controlled AIDS service organization. Since 1990, we have provided lifesaving services to more than 20,000 homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.
