In November, we reinstituted two contractor positions. We welcome Nancy Busler at the Travis Community Thrift Shop Manager and Britany Reynolds as our full time Travis Community Thrift Shop Manager Cashier. We are so happy to be able to offer two paying positions to fellow military spouses. The improvements in the last few months are noticeable and we are excited for whats ahead with Nancy and Brittany leading the way!


Travis Spouse’s Club (TSC) owns and operates the Travis Community Thrift Shop (TCTS). All of the profits earned at the Thrift Shop are exclusively used for charitable causes to benefit Team Travis, the local community, military service-related organizations and the TSC scholarship fund for graduating seniors and military spouses.


TSC also operates and manages the No Bounds Boutique located inside the Travis Community Thrift Shop. We offer low cost formal gowns. We have revamped this program so stay tuned for the grant reveal.


We are located at 560 Hickam Ave Building #247. The Parking/Entrance is off Waldron St.


We need YOU! The Travis Community Thrift Shop is an excellent opportunity to help give back to Travis Air Force Base community and to make new friends! Volunteers have to be at least 14 years old and have base access.


We have made so many improvements at our Travis Community Thrift Shop with the help of incredible volunteers!


If you would like to volunteer, but are unable to come in during our business hours, we offer volunteer opportunities that will allow you to take inventory home for you to prepare to be sold at the Thrift Shop!

Operation Cookie Drop 2021 was a huge a success thanks to each person, group or company that sponsored an airmen. A heartfelt thank you to the spouses, airmen, civilians and community members who donated their time to ensure this event was a whopping success! It was an amazing assembly line in action! ~ Mrs. Dawn Simmons
