Community Support

All proceeds of the Second Tern go to support the Sunriver Nature Center and the Oregon Observatory.  Our excellent, pre-owned merchandise permits families to have quality household necessities and clothing at thrift store prices. Emergency assistance is provided to local families when disaster strikes. As a bonus, you get a charitable donation tax deduction!
