Trinity Treasures

You all know how successful our Thrift Store is, but did you know they also do a lot for the community in other ways? 

Over the summer, Karen, Betty and their volunteers:

      1. continued to give all our children’s books away for free.
      2. gave away books July 19th – 21st.
      3. celebrated our Christmas in July event the week of July 26th–28th.  Everything was 50% off. 
      4. gave five bicycles to two refugee families (both refugee committees).
      5. gave away all our clothing on August 31st and September 1st.
      6. continue to help a number of individuals with free merchandise, including a few homeless men who come and get new clothes each week.
      7. have started to match people with the furniture we don’t accept (i.e. beds, etc.)    with individuals in need of the furniture.  We do not charge for this service.

Clothing, Housewares, Linens, Furniture!!
Why pay top dollar when you can find it right here!

Located at 128 – 10th Ave North, on the south side of the church, the thrift store is co-managed by Karen Shannon and Betty Martin, and they have a great team of volunteers! Together, the store is kept in tip-top shape. The volunteers work hard sorting and pricing all of the clothing, housewares and other items that are donated. They also man the til and help customers on the floor. This keeps them very very busy!!

SHOP: Wed, Thu, Fri 8:30am – 12:30pm

DONATE: Mon – Fri  9:00am – 12:00noon
