The Thrift Shop is non-denominational clothing and small goods store selling lightly used clothing and household linens. Clothes and small items are sorted and displayed for purchase at a nominal fee. Any items that are slightly stained or torn are picked up by the Am Vets truck every Tuesday. The Thrift Shop also distributes clothes at no charge to Katrina victims, families in need that come to us through the Food Pantry or through Sister Pauline Egan at Sacred Heart Southern Missions.
The following churches operate the Thrift Shop on a totally volunteer basis. They are:
QUEEN OF PEACE CATHOLIC CHURCH
CEDARVIEW BAPTIST CHURCH-LEWISBURG,
LONGVIEW HEIGHTS BAPTIST,
MAPLES MEMORIAL METHODIST,
PLEASANT HILL BAPTIST
Each church operates the Thrift Shop for one month. Some of the churches have a small congregation so they will share a month.
There is a Food Pantry/Thrift Shop Committee Meeting, with a representative from each church, which meets twice a year. At that meeting requests are received and discussed for donations to worthy local organizations such as Grace House, an Orphanage in Independence, Sr Pauline Egan with Sacred Heart Southern Missions, etc.
Queen of Peace will operate the Thrift Shop next in November 2008.
