Notes concerning the Heaven Sent Thrift Shop for the year 2017
All of us from the Heaven Sent Thrift Shop would like to thank all of you for your support throughout the year; for your presence and your donations, which allowed the Thrift Shop to realize more than $10,000 for 2017. Taking into consideration the very low average price of items sold, that figure represents lot of items sold. In addition to new and gently used clothing, we have housewares, jewelry, books, CDs, DVDs, LPs, VHS tapes, toys, collectibles, and more.
Besides the funds realized for the church, the Thrift Shop serves as a community outreach effort. Many of our customers tell us that their quality of life is improved by the ability to purchase quality goods for themselves and their families at very reasonable prices.
Some of our customers are private duty aides that come in and are able to help out their clients with the items we sell; also, we have customers who come to buy items to support their respective missionary programs here and abroad.
Last, we are available to listen one on one, when one of our customers has a need to talk to someone, because, when all is said and done, our customers do become part of our family.
We look forward to 2018 and know you will all continue to support this important ministry of the church.
