Our Mission
Twice Blessed helps people and families get back on their feet. We operate a community-run thrift shop that is made possible by donations given from residents, second homewners, businesses, and visitors. All proceeds beyond our expenses go directly to individuals in crisis, as well as other non-profits in the area. We provide financial help to individuals in crisis for medical issues, housing, child care, utilities, car payments, repairs, and other needs. Our outreach includes the nine towns that comprise the Deerfield Valley. Our motto is, "A hand up, not a handout."

About Twice Blessed
Twice Blessed is a federal 501-C-3 and state of Vermont non-profit that helps people and families get back on their feet. We operate a community-run thrift shop that is made possible by donations given from residents, second homewners, businesses, and visitors. All proceeds beyond our expenses go directly to Deerfield Valley residents in crisis, as well as other non-profits in the area.

All goods in the Twice Blessed Thrift Store are donated by local residents, second homeowners, visitors, and others dedicated to helping the plight of individuals and families in need of a helping hand. All thrift store proceeds and goods beyond operating expenses contribute to the Twice Blessed fund, which provides a helping hand to residents of Marlboro, Wilmington, Halifax, Jacksonville, Whitingham, Readsboro, Searsburg, Dover, and Wardsboro, Vermont. We provide financial help to residents in crisis in these communities for medical issues, housing, child care, utilities, car payments, repairs, and other needs.

The board of directors, staff, and volunteer corps are a group of local residents dedicated to serving their neighbors in the nine towns of the Deerfield Valley. We are also fortunate that service professionals regularly donate pro bono assistance and maintenance supplies for our building repairs.

Along with our regular volunteers. we work with agencies affiliated with the State of Vermont, such as "The Reach Up" Program, Probation and Parole ( using individuals that have mandatory community service and are not involved in violent/domestic crimes), SEVCA, Social Services, RSVP and local programs Deerfield Valley Food Panty, Deerfield Valley Community Cares (a local fuel assistance program), Lions Club , Mason’s, American Legion, Family of Soldiers Program, town government, police departments, local schools, and churches. We conduct fundrasiing events to supplement our reesources along with grants and other monetary donations.

Twice Blessed also sponsors a "Holiday Giving" Tree Program, which provides gifts and a dinner at holiday time. We have been in existence since 1997.

Our supporters have been extremely generous, including our business community who regularly extends their resources to help all aspects of the community. This is a wonderful place to live. It is where small town America really is able to make a difference and shine.

Our motto is: "A hand up, not a handout."
