About the Thrift Store
The Thrift Store resells gently used items at low prices to the community. Items include: clothing, housewares, furniture and appliances. This aspect of our work supports the community in a variety of ways.
Store proceeds make up 75% of the mission center's revenue. This funding covers expenses, and allows the mission center donations to support new programs and program expansion.
We offer a wide range of opportunities to serve. Some help build job skills and experience for the workforce.
Donated items are sold for a fraction of what they cost new, or even in other resale shops. The turnover is high, with new items donated daily.
All items are either sold or recycled. In some cases we receive cash for recycled items (such as metals) but in others we ensure safe disposal.
A cross-section of area residents frequent the store for the 'thrill of the deal'. Many of our shoppers have become our friends, and have befriended Mansfield neighbors they see on a regular basis.
