The more you donate, shop, and support WINS, the more people WIN.

In 2022, 88 cents of every dollar earned are invested back into our community programs.


Why shop WINS?

Rather uniquely, we are able to contribute your donations, both funds and goods, to our programs by operating separate sustainable shopping brands, bulk thrifting More Store, and online thrifting Twice New to cover other expenses.
