Thank you to everyone who made the first week for Samaritan House Thrift Store a great success! The store will be opened Thursday through Saturday, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Dontations will be taken on Mondays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm or by appointment.
To help with funds for rent and utilities, we are launching a “Sponsor the Store” campaign. We are looking to find 12 churches, groups, businesses, or individuals who would “Sponsor the Store” for a month. Our rent this year is $500/month. We will have a sign in the store showing who the monthly sponsor is for a particular month. Would you please help us spread the word? If we can find 12 sponsors, that would allow us some breathing room and also allow more money to go more quickly to helping women.
We are also in need of volunteers to help with running the store and sorting items that come in. Of course, we are in need of gently used items that have resale value–clothing, household goods, etc.
If you are interested in having us come to your church or group to give a presentation about this ministry, please get in touch with Ann Ledgerwood at 276-608-2578 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
