In 2011 the Community Budget Center teamed up with ARC Thrift Stores in Denver.  Any donations that cannot be sold are put into our trailer and picked up by ARC when they are full.  They recycle what is not reusable to them  and send unsold clothing to 3rd world countries.  The clothing not used can be cut into rugs or usable items.  This has been such a blessing to CBC.  It has reduced our landfill bill by more than $200 per month and keeps useable items out of the landfill.

We are so thankful to our generous community for all of the donations that have been contributed over the years.  Without the donations coming in there would be no store at all.  We were able five assistance to over 900 clients in 2013 and have given assistance to over 800 clients already in 2014. Since 2005 we have helped people with over $750,000!  EVERY TIME YOU DONATE AND EVERY TIME YOU BUY YOU ARE HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE IN NEED.  Thank you so much for your support.
