Com­mu­ni­ty Trea­sures is a 501©3 pub­lic char­i­ty thrift shop (dba CT Recy­cling) and known as “CT”.  CT pro­vides items free of charge to non­prof­it and ser­vice orga­ni­za­tions, as well as some occa­sion­al ser­vices for orga­ni­za­tions and indi­vid­u­als, to the tune of about $2,000 a month.  In addi­tion, CT pro­vides funds for com­mu­ni­ty pro­grams and projects that sup­port CT’s char­i­ta­ble mission.

In May, CT is proud to announce that it will make con­tri­bu­tions of $7,000 toward local pro­grams, includ­ing two con­tri­bu­tions for Pre­ven­tion Coali­tion projects — $1,500 for Voic­es for Healthy Choic­es, and $500 for Project Grad Night.  In addi­tion, CT is con­tribut­ing $3,000 toward roof repairs for the Recov­ery House, which hosts per­son­al recov­ery pro­grams.  CT is also con­tribut­ing $2,000 to stu­dent scholarships.

We would like to thank indi­vid­u­als in our com­mu­ni­ty for their gen­er­ous sup­port, which makes it pos­si­ble for Com­mu­ni­ty Trea­sures to give back to local char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tions, deserv­ing projects, and wor­thy students.

Com­mu­ni­ty Trea­sures is locat­ed at 6739 Roche Har­bor Road and reuses, repur­pos­es and recy­cles items donat­ed by our island neigh­bors. With­out your sup­port and the help of our tire­less vol­un­teers, it would not be pos­si­ble for us to suc­ceed. Thank you very much!
