Palmetto Thrift Store and Gift Boutique was founded in November of 2007. Ever since then, the store has had a very special mission that will make all of us feel good about shopping and donating there. They give 50% of their profits to Children’s Chance, a program that helps children who are fighting cancer and their families throughout South Carolina. They help to fund a variety of programs for children battling cancer, such as cancer diagnosis and treatment, and support during recovery or end of life.
Children’s Chance was formed on September 25, 1996 by two mothers who had daughters battling cancer. The organization was started to fill in gaps among the current services provided for pediatric cancer patients and their families
