St. Francis and Pope Francis asks the world to help the poor & needy!

Our Thrift Store has an open door policy for all of God’s children, in order to serve their needs. Over the last 5 years we have distributed in excess of $600,000 to assist our friends in need for rental, utilities, medical & other special needs. We also give free of charge, clothing, household, & other items through our Referral Program from Church’s & Service Organizations. All this is made possible through the sale of Your Donations to the store. We accept most things & can assist you if needed. Give us a Call and we’ll be happy to pick it up with our Pope Mobile!

Our open door policy for all makes it possible to serve those who have fallen on unfortunate times with immediate needs to overcome evictions & cut off notices for utilities, rent or medication.

A Volunteer board of directors, thousands of hours of our fellow Volunteers & Your Donations, make this Possible.

“Do not look forward to what might happen tomorrow. The same everlasting father that cares for you today, will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either he will shield you from suffering, or he will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.”
— -Saint Francis of Assisi
