Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are aiming to serve more children and adults in the area. We need to be able to clothe more school children .

We fund these programs through sales at our Thrift Shop and with Grants.

We are getting information on our Thrift Shop out in the community by sending Constant Contact and local news organizations.

We have a Grants committee who apply for grants.

We have increased our revenue from the Thrift Shop almost every month. The donations of goods for the Shop have also increased. We also are able to donate goods that we are unable to sell in our Shop to other non profits who donate the goods.
