The Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation collaborates with our generous customers, area businesses and community partners to support each community where our stores are located, totaling millions of dollars in financial and product donations since the foundation’s inception in 2004. The contributions made supply these major areas of focus, but are not limited to:
- Assisting people in need, including children, veterans and military, those who are homeless, and those struggling with food insecurity
- Aiding animal rescues, shelters and welfare organizations
- Providing support for healthcare programs and services
Over the past few years, specific initiatives have been created to support people and communities affected by crisis, natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, we have supplied over $35 million of personal protective equipment and emergency frontline medical supplies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters both domestically and internationally and to the crisis in Ukraine.
