St. John's Community Thrift Store
Wed & Thur-10-5
St. John's Community Thrift Store was founded
in downtown New London as an outreach ministry of St. John's Center for Inner
Peace and Church. Since opening in May of 2002, we have seen God work in many wonderful ways. The store itself is a place where God's ministry takes place on a daily basis. Our customers continuously compliment us on the quality of our goods and the friendliness with which they are greeted.
Thrift Store Sponsors Help To The Local Area
The Thrift Store has donated funds to area schools to be used at the discretion of counselors and teachers for children who do not have the school supplies they need. With this money, teachers purchase backpacks, crayons, paper, and other items necessary for the children's education.
Proceeds raised by the Thrift Store are distributed to local
not-for-profit organizations. They fund organizations like Homeless
Shelter, COTS, Harbor House, and CHAPS
The Thrift Store has also purchased and distributed Christmas gifts and food boxes to several families in New London.
In the Fall of 2003, St. John's Resource Center opened its' doors at 209 S. Pearl St. in New London. St. John's Community Thrift Store maintains rent and utilities for the Resource Center. In addition, the Thrift Store provides all the funds needed to purchase food for St. John's Food Pantry located in the Resource Center. Many families are offered food each week at the Food Pantry.
Since St. John's Community Thrift Store opened in 2002, we are in awe of the tremendous work God is doing through this store and the many volunteers who help make it happen. This ministry is touching the lives of so many people! If you would like to be a part of this awesome ministry and help touch the lives of many, contact Wendy Nelson (Manager) at 920-982-4141.
