History

Our History


 

 

Now in existence for over 50 years St. Francis Thrift Store continues to expand its programs and offerings to the Community.

The store operates as a non-profit 501-C-3 Corporation, to serve the poor in need. We accomplish Our Mission through the operation of the Thrift Store, by receiving donations of clothing, and goods, then distributing them at affordable prices.

The profit from the Stores Operation are redirected to Our Outreach Program and Referral Program that helps to provide direct welfare assistance to our friends in need for emergency assistance for Housing Rent, Utility, & Medical Bills.
