About Red Ribbon Resale
Red Ribbon Resale is a thrift store. All merchandise is donated. We cannot purchase items for resale or accept items on consignment without jeopardizing our non-profit status. Since we are a non-profit organization, we are not required to charge South Carolina's 6% sales tax, which is another way out customers save.
AID Upstate started as a volunteer response to the emerging HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. We provide supportive services to men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in Upstate South Carolina. We also offer free HIV testing, risk assessments and risk counseling and education to the general public.
HIV/AIDS related illnesses make stable employment impossible for many. Thirty-one percent of our clients depend on government disability benefits as their sole income. Our case managers work with clients to help them develop the skills needed to work toward becoming self-sufficient. Many clients rarely achieve complete and sustained self-sufficiency. One unexpected crisis, no matter how big or small, can bring their world crashing down. We are here as a safety net; otherwise, homelessness would be imminent.
