BVIRC Thrift Shop
For years the BVI Red Cross Thrift Shop has served the most vulnerable population in our community by offering new and gently used items such as clothing, shoes, furniture, appliances, household and other miscellaneous items which were all generously donated by members of the community. Like all Red Cross programmes, the Thrift Shop is open to all members of the community.
The Thrift Shop works closely with a number of government and NGOs who refer their clients/beneficiaries to our service regularly using the BVIRC referral form. Some of these agencies include the Social Development Department, The Family Support Network, and any other community organizations that cater to the needs of the vulnerable population. Persons who are referred to the Thrift Shop by these agencies are given access to Shop goods free of cost to them.
Furthermore, the Thrift Shop also helps and supports those families in the community who are victims of disaster, be it an island-wide disaster such as Hurricanes Irma and Maria or an individual family’s disaster, such as house fire.
There are two ways in which persons in need of assistance can obtain help from the BVIRC. The first way is via a referral from a partner agency (government and NGO) that has conducted an assessment and determined the person’s/family’s need. The second way is via a self-referral where individuals come in to request assistance. Persons who come in on a self-referral are then assessed by the BVIRC who makes a determination as to their need and what the BVIRC can offer- which may include access to items from our shop free of cost to referrals to other more suitable agencies.
