Twig Thrift Shop News!
In February the Twig Thrift Shop opened after 45 days of closure during the local COVID holiday peak. Shoppers were waiting to visit and took home deeply discounted purchases. We missed our customers during the pandemic and are delighted to be open and operating safely again.
Thank you to our valued customers for their continued patronage. We look forward to seeing YOU in the future at 106 North Columbus Street. For dates and hours of operation, visit www.thetwig.org
Here's What They Have to Say About Us:

“Christ Church has provided emergency financial assistance and food to members of the Alexandria community in need since the early 1990’s. We have a large weekly food pantry and we help with rent, utilities and medical bills. Often during the course of our conversation we learn that people are in need of clothing, particularly to find a job or to meet requirements for a job. The Twig Thrift Shop allows us to refer up to three clients a week for clothing and offers assistance with selection when needed”.  Melanie Gray, Christ Church Alexandria

“Twig members are dedicated to their mission to support Inova Alexandria Hospital and other charities in the Alexandria community. Twigs have a strong work ethic and demonstrate compassion and love for their community. I was extremely proud to serve as Twig President in 2004 with a pledge to design the Twig Pavilion, a state of the art 16 bed Telemetry Unit. Since 1933 our organization has been dedicated & committed to serving others”. Starlet Zarek, Twig Past President

“As a native Alexandrian, and on behalf of the Inova Alexandria Hospital Foundation Board, I can’t say enough about the tremendous impact The Twig has made on Inova Alexandria Hospital and our community. Their long-standing commitment and generosity is beyond inspiring, and is a testament to the meaning and value of working together to serve others. Thank you, Twigs, for all you do for Inova Alexandria Hospital” Don Simpson, Jr., President, Simpson Development Co. Inc. and Chairman of the Inova Alexandria Hospital Foundation Board
The Twig Supports Other Charities

The Twig Thrift Shop provides clothing to the local community at affordable prices. For those who need assistance, the Twig supports Carpenter's Shelter in Alexandria, Virginia. Case Managers with the Carpenter Shelter administer a voucher system for the purchase of clothing at the Twig Thrift Shop.
The mission of the Carpenter's Shelter is to support the homeless to achieve sustainable independence through shelter, guidance, education, and advocacy.
