A thrift store in Keene has gifted a $1,500 grant to a local theater company.

All of the net proceeds at More Than a Thrift Store on Ralston Street are donated to local nonprofit organizations, so the store periodically presents a check to an agency of its choosing.

In 2018, The Edge Ensemble received $2,500, according to the thrift store’s website.

Kim Dupuis, the founding artistic director of Keene’s The Edge Ensemble, said in a news release that the money will be used to support play productions in this and next year.

Calling More Than a Thrift Store a “local jewel,” Dupuis said in a news release that the funds will also enhance the company’s outreach efforts.
