Thrifty Sisters, Richmond’s Curated Thrift Shop,
Saint Francis Home’s New Beneficiary
New Partnership ~ June 2021
We are thrilled to announce that Saint Francis Home is now the charitable beneficiary of Thrifty Sisters. Richmond, VA’s curated, go-to thrift shop, Thrifty Sisters sells women & men’s clothing, jewelry, home goods, furniture, books and other treasures. With every purchase, shoppers make a difference in our community and will now be supporting Saint Francis Home.
Our residents cannot afford the high costs that are typically associated with assisted living facilities, therefore each year we rely on charitable donations to subsidize the nearly $1.4 million difference between our cost of providing care and the income we receive. Saint Francis Home is the only remaining faith-based assisted living community in the area that is dedicated to exclusively serving older adults of limited means and the need for help is greater now than ever before. For that reason, this new relationship with Thrifty Sisters is a wonderful collaboration which is both fortuitous and timely. We are tremendously grateful to have earned the chance to work together toward our shared calling.
About Thrifty Sisters
In 2012, Thrifty Sisters opened its doors to provide support to the Little Sisters of the Poor at St. Josephs Home for seniors who needed assisted living and nursing care but did not have the financial resources. In the spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan, founder of Little Sisters of the Poor, Thrifty Sisters believes in working as a community to create a safe, loving, and comfortable home for the poor elderly in Central Virginia. By shopping at, volunteering with, and donating to Thrifty Sisters, you are helping to support this mission and now benefit Saint Francis Home. Thrifty Sisters is located at 8911 Patterson Avenue in Henrico, VA 23229, and is open to the public for shopping Tuesday – Saturday 10 am – 4 pm. Donations are accepted by appointment only, by contacting the shop at (804) 658-4153. To learn more about Thrifty Sisters, please visit ThriftySistersRVA.org.
