Dwell with Dignity’s annual fundraiser helps families in need
When it comes to shopping for a cause for wellness, Dwell With Dignity’s 11th Annual Thrift Studio Fundraiser ticks all the boxes.
The 25,000-square-foot pop-up experience in the Dallas Design District includes donations of furniture, home decorations and other high-end finds in shopping vignettes curated by local designers. Each designer item is available to the public to purchase at a significant discount.
All proceeds go towards Dwell With Dignity’s mission of creating inspiring indoor spaces for families in need through partnerships with social service organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Genesis Women’s Shelter.
“You can not only contribute to the sustainability of the community because these coins are donated instead of being thrown away, but every dollar goes directly to our families,” says Ashley Sharp, Executive Director of Dwell With Dignity. It aims to raise more than $ 500,000 to support the Dallas nonprofit, which relies on Thrift Studio for one-third of its operating revenue.
New this year: a series of special Thrifty Thursday events with extended shopping hours, exclusive discounts, special happy hours and workshops.
The Thrift Studio 2021 pop-up store is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except Labor Day September 6) through September 25 at 175 Oak Lawn Ave., Dallas.
