The grand opening of the Dollars for Scholars thrift store last weekend was a huge success!

Community members, as well as SPC students, alumni and employees, found bargains on clothing, jewelry, shoes and home goods.

The new thrift store even has a complete department of brand new clothing from Jim’s Harley-Davidson.

The Dollars for Scholars Thrift store is open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Saturday and is located at the college’s Caruth Health Education Center, 7028 66th St. N, Pinellas Park.

Donations can be dropped off during normal business hours. The thrift store is especially in need of men’s clothing, office supplies and computers (but NO monitors please!)

For more information, visit Dollars for Scholars web site for details or contact Michelle Piccione at 727-341-3620.

    Dollars For Scholars is about the finest new little thrift store around. It is VERY evident that they work hard to keep the place neat, clean, tidy and organized. I have shopped there upon a few occasions and always found great products at great prices. It seems as if they sort through their merchandise better than most thrift stores as well. I have yet found damaged or stained clothing that they are trying to pass off on a customer in hopes of a sale. Kepp up the good work. Michael

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
