Hope's Treasures Retail Store
Thrift stores are a great way to shop, to save money and to be careful with our planet’s resources. It is also an inexpensive way for people to shop and repurpose everything, from the kitchen sink to the tool box.
Our stores are a blessing to GSA in three ways:
We have heard of some with the mistaken idea that they should avoid shopping in the thrift stores, leaving the bargains for those who need them. You would not be cheating the needy out of good buys at the stores; there are plenty of donated items for everyone. Shopping at the thrift stores gets you deals and helps the homeless at the same time. The proceeds from your purchases provide a safe place for families, women and children to stay and services to get them out of a homeless situation. The shelters run 24/7, 365 days a year. This is a large expense and GSA (Good Shepherd Alliance, Inc.) could in no way do this without the community’s support.
Our thrift stores are there to provide a valuable opportunity for those with limited means or in emergency situations. Many times the local Red Cross will call on behalf of someone that has lost everything in a home catastrophe, such as a fire or flood. They will receive necessary clothing or household items with a FREE voucher. The schools may send a child or family that is in need of clothing, coats or shoes with a voucher to receive these items for FREE. Donations also provide funding for other services to the needy.
We invite you to come in to shop the next time that you drop off your donations to our thrift stores. Find the deals you need in this tough economic time, for the sake of those in need in your community.
