On Monday, December 2nd, Bissell Centre’s Temporary Thrift Shoppe will officially open as a store where low-income people and families can shop for gently used items. The Temporary Thrift Shoppe has been open since October 25th as a location to drop-off donations but will now be 100% operational as both a store and a donation drop-off facility!
This will benefit the 5,000 to 6,000 low income people who utilize the Thrift Shoppe on a monthly basis to shop for much needed items including clothing, household goods, children’s toys, and personal care items.
The Temporary Thrift Shoppe is located only a few blocks from our original Thrift Shoppe location that is currently under renovations due to fire damage that occurred in early September. All of the donations were lost in the fire and we are encouraging the public to continue to help us “Restock the Shoppe” by donating items such as: clothing for all ages and seasons, new socks & undergarments, footwear, backpacks & purses, linens & bedding, kitchen items, and toiletries & personal care items.
