Thank you for visiting the Elephants Trunk thrift shop website, and for all of your donations and purchases. The Elephants Trunk thrift ship is operated by the Healthcare Volunteers of Venice. Donations are vital in keeping the Elephants Trunk thrift shop a viable operation and sustaining our fundraising commitment. All profits benefit patients of the Venice Regional Medical Center and residents of the Venice Community.
Every item that you drop off at the Elephants Trunk thrift shop, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is valuable to us and all items gathered are considered a contribution since all proceeds benefit the patients of Venice Regional Medical Center (VRMC) and the Venice community.
