About Basic Needs inc. dba Stone Soup Thrift Shop
Basic Needs Action Team was established in 1996 to determine how to meet the needs of the disadvantaged within the community. It was decided that a community-based thrift store should be opened, where the general public could donate their gently used goods for resale.
Basic Needs Inc. of South Washington County applied for and received non-profit status [IRS 501 (c) (3)]. Stone Soup Thrift shop opened on September 7th, 1997.
During 2016, Stone Soup provided voucher assistance to those lacking the funds to purchases basic household goods, furniture and clothing. The vouchers allow Stone Soup to provide these goods at no cost. These donations helped community churches and other agencies, along with over 300 children and over 400 adults.
We are proud to say that over the last 20 years, we have provided more than one million dollars’ worth of free merchandise to people in need.
