Our Mission

Our Mission


“In loving one another through our works, we bring an increase of grace and growth in divine love.”
— Mother Teresa

St. Francis Thrift Store is a diverse Catholic lay of Community Missionaries that is inspired by Gospel values to provide a network of charity to assist the needy & suffering by promoting social justice. Now in existence for over 50 years. St. Francis Thrift Store continues to expand its programs & offerings to the Community.

“We want to thank everyone who made these outstanding numbers possible with your donations and volunteering. The need for friends grows everyday, we see approximately 40 to 50 friends in need every week within our community and surrounding areas.  If you can help with donations or shopping at our store we want you to know all profits go directly to the Outreach program.”
— Board of St. Francis Thrift Store

Last year we were able to assist over 1,762 individuals and families in Cass & Clay Counties, with financial help totaling over $330,000, to help offset rent, utilities, clothing, food and some medical expenses.

“To change the world we must be good to those who cannot repay us.”
— Pope Francis

Mother Teresa and Pope Francis asked the world to take care of the poor: St Francis Thrift Store sees to the needs of the poor every day. But we can’t do it alone.

“For it is giving that we receive.”
— Saint Francis of Assisi
