Posts from the ‘The Thrift Shop’ Category
For 63 years, The Thrift Shop has helped people in need, our church, and the community. Here’s how:
- Goods donated are mostly priced $5 or less. Free items are put out each week in the hallway.
- Vouchers issued by social service agencies allow those in need to take free goods for each family member.
- About 15 large bags of excess or unsaleable goods are donated to Goodwill each week, helping disabled people
- No one is paid to work; all workers pay for the goods they buy. Volunteers are not just CCUCC people. Many work 6 hours per month or more and are trained.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THE THRIFT SHOP
The Thrift Shop is Pullman’s oldest recycled goods store featuring clothing for all ages, books, toys, sports gear, housewares, gifts, crafts, jewelry, and many useful and unique items. The Community Congregational Church women’s group started the shop over 65 years ago to fund a new kitchen. It just grew from there into a tidy, well stocked store that serves people from throughout the Palouse region. The prices are genuinely low because it is staffed entirely by volunteers. A portion of the proceeds are returned each year to local charities such as United Way, Alternatives to Violence, Community Action Center and Pullman Child Welfare’s food bank. A 24/7 donation bin at the corner of Ruby and Campus takes the goods. No furniture please, due to space. Parking is free in the church lot while shopping. Ruby Street entrance on lower level of church.
Hours: Tuesdays 4:30-6:30 p.m. and Thursdays and Fridays noon to 4:00 p.m.
Reduce, Reuse, Simplify, and Save!
Come see our latest additions. The Houseware’s section is loaded with items for your kitchen and bed and bath. We hope you’ll stop by and enjoy low prices and find a treasure or two!
Re-purpose all the “stuff” you need to get out of your house this winter. Bring gently used clothing, shoes, and items in good working condition to The Thrift Shop. At this time of year especially, the shop can use good items to restock the shelves. Drop donations anytime in the little grey shed on the corner of Campus and Ruby Streets. Thanks!
