BOOMERANGS

Shop Thrift. Fight AIDS.

Boomerangs was started as part of a long-term strategy to diversify revenue streams in the face of declining state and federal funding. As public funding for HIV support, prevention and education programs continues to dwindle, this entrepreneurial approach allows AIDS Action to continue providing services—the need for which increases each year.

Our Volunteers

Boomerangs relies on volunteers to ensure our smooth operation. We provide fun and unique opportunities for individuals, community organizations, and corporations to get involved and support the AIDS Action. In fact, over 300 hours of volunteer service are contributed each month to help ensure our stores are filled with the best merchandise and client programs remain funded.

Thrifting Helps the Environment

Synthetic clothing may take hundreds of years to decompose in a landfill. If the average life of clothing was extended by just three months, it would reduce by five to ten percent their carbon and water footprints, as well as waste generation. The recycling of two million tons of clothing per year equates to taking one million cars from U.S. streets.
