Arthritis Foundation Thrift Shop

The Arthritis Foundation is the "Champion of Yes". Through their offices in New York City, Long Island, Albany, and Rochester, they are focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis with vital information, advocacy, science, and community. Charting the course for the arthritis community, they help families develop personalized plans for saying yes—day after day.

For more than 55 years, the Arthritis Foundation Thrift Shop, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan has been a destination for shoppers and "thrift-inistas" throughout NYC. All proceeds help fund research to find a cure for arthritis, advocate for better access to care, and connect families to the treatment and support they need.
