Shopping. For Good.

May is an exciting month for us!  Each May we distribute our profits to a new group of agencies which do life altering work for those they serve.  A committee which reviews grant requests has been diligently working for the last few months; and now the decisions have been made, the checks written and delivered!



This year, we are funding 67 agencies whose work will feed the hungry, offer shelter to the homeless, provide aid to the sick and elderly, offer comfort and assistance to the battered among us and support education for those on the margins.  Some are local and others do their work far from here.  Some are large, with familiar names, and some are small, doing their work quietly and largely unknown to most of us.  For all 67, we are honored to support their work.  


For most of us there is likely an issue or agency that is of particular concern—a problem that weighs on our heart more than most.  If that is the case for you, the chances are good that the group whose work means the most to you is on the list of agencies we support.

Our regular shoppers know that since 1958, St. Michael’s Woman’s Exchange has distributed our proceeds to benefit those in need.  This year, as we celebrate our 60th Birthday, cumulative distributions topped the $9 million mark!  We are thrilled to reach this milestone of course, but there is still much to be done to relieve the suffering in our community and the world beyond.  So do stop by and make a purchase!  When you shop at St. Michael’s Woman’s Exchange, you really can shop once…and give twice!
