‘Tis the holiday season — a time to give gifts large and small to everyone on your list. But, what if you could buy must-have presents that also benefit the community?

At Kiwanis Marketplace Thrift Store, you can, because all month long they are not only offering amazing gift options at discount prices, but they’re hosting a variety of special holiday events to help you get in the spirit of the season as well.

The Kiwanis Marketplace is a foundation of the Kiwanis Club of Carefree, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the well-being of the community, primarily through helping children. According to Kiwanis Marketplace general manager Alex Perez, 70% of the sales at the store go directly back to the community through the organization’s various programs. The remaining funds are used to pay bills and keep the lights on.

“You truly do help the community every time you shop here,” he added.

This month, Kiwanis Marketplace Thrift Store is hosting several holiday-themed events, including their popular Kiwanis Country Christmas Weekend Sale from Dec. 8-10.

Holiday Kiwanis Marketplace Thrift Store Events:

  • Friday, Dec. 8 – Saturday, Dec. 9: Kiwanis Country Christmas Weekend Sale. Certain areas of the store will be 50% off and the store will be open until 7 p.m. to help with holiday shopping. On Saturday, Dec. 9, the Desert Hills Community School of Music will be performing holiday music outside of the store.

  • Sunday, Dec. 10: Kiwanis Country Christmas Weekend Sale continues with the “Lots in the Lot” Sale. Everything outside is $2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Regularly priced items will also be available inside the store at this time too.
