Each year, the Fort Myer Thrift Shop (a 501(c)(3) exempt, non-profit organization), in partnership with AOWCGWA, raises money through donations and consignments of clothing and household items. Dedicated volunteers generously give of their time working numerous hours every year at the Thrift Shop to raise funds for Scholarships and Community Grants.
In 2013, a record amount of scholarships and community grants were awarded in celebration of the dedicated AOWCGWA/Fort Myer Thrift Shop volunteers who have worked diligently throughout the 36 years of service!
