Our faith based mission is centered on serving God by following His commandment to love and care for our neighbors here in Pickens County. We accomplish this through the sale of generous donations to our store. There are no employees, only volunteers that work together with a common goal of helping others. Our customers find quality goods with affordable prices, in a clean, friendly environment. Grants are given each quarter to selected local charitable organizations, allowing each of these valuable non-profit groups to help those who might otherwise never be identified. Additionally, we also help individuals in need through our free clothing program and to those who have experienced an unforeseen tragedy. Together with our sister charities, lives are changed.
All Are Welcome!
Anyone is welcome to drop by and take a look at great bargains, or make a donation of reusable items.
