Mountain Findings Community Thrift Store is an all-volunteer organization whose proceeds have benefited approximately 40 nonprofits in the Highlands area. Grants are awarded to those organizations that help people in need, as well as animal welfare, healthcare, the environment, the arts, and any organization seeking to assist and support the community. Additionally, scholarships are given to a number of Highlands High School students to aid in the costs of tuition while furthering their education. The scholarships and grants that serve the community are only made possible by the generosity of the area's residents who donate items to be sold for the benefit of others. Mountain Findings has been an asset to the Highlands area for fifty years, giving its residents the chance to donate, to serve, to shop, and to receive.
