Community Involvement

Once A Month
We Give Wednesday

Along with individual involvement, the Lizard Thicket stores work together to further support their communities. The first Wednesday of every month, Lizard Thicket stores host We Give Wednesday’s, which gives our customers an opportunity to help us give back. On this day, 10% of all sales are donated to the store's local charity they have chosen to support that year!
