History

"It's A Bargain" Thrift Shop was established in 1957, and is sponsored by the Charitable Children's Guild of Orthopaedic Institute for Children. The Guild was incorporated in 1913 and has assisted in making the future better by helping children with orthopaedic problems.

Since its inception and with the proceeds from the "It's A Bargain" Thrift Shop, the Charitable Children's Guild has funded a variety of programs and services for the benefit of children. The Guild provided a charitable endowment fund for children, contributed to the wheelchair fund, supported the Homer C. Pheasant Spine Institute, Bone Tumor Registry, Hemophilia Treatment Center, Spina Bifida Service, Cleft Palate Clinic, Brace Fund and Music Therapy Program.
