From Lamar County Human Resources Council
The Thrift Store is a big part of what we do at HH, and it serves two purposes. One, it allows our clients & other individuals in need of help a cheap or, sometimes even free method of getting clothes & other items of need for themselves and/or family. And two, the funds raised from sales help support programming at the shelter.
In December, we closed the store to the public temporarily, & began a massive remodel. With the help of Blue Belt Contracting, the entire store has received a face-lift. It’s like night & day, and already, we are so proud of it. New walls, fresh paint, new floors, light fixtures, are just a few of the upgrades
We anticipate the remodel to be complete by mid-February, and then we’ll begin the task of overhauling our market system, with a goal of reopening in March.
The Thrift Store model is brand new, & will include vouchers to low income households, HH residents, or in case of emergency like a fire, and discounts for individuals who are receiving SNAP.
Currently, we are not accepting donations because we simply don’t have the space while we remodel. Once we begin taking donations again, we will post here on our page, & we are looking for clothing, shoes, baby items, housewares, blankets, & toiletries (new). This is not an all encompassing list, but simply items of high need.
It’s important to us that individuals shopping in our store have a clean, safe storefront to shop in, regardless of their income level, & that’s why this remodel was so important to LCHRC.
If you are interested in volunteering at the store, or making a donation toward the shelter or remodel, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Be sure to check back for details on our grand reopening.
