St. Paul has an active thrift shop. It's purpose is to put good used clothing and household items into the hands of people who need them. The staff at St. Paul long ago realized that most people do not want a hand out; instead, they want to be part of the economy by purchasing items at an affordable price. This, in turn, provides much needed income for the St. Paul Outreach Ministry.
St. Paul UMC appreciates your generous donations of clothing and household items. Our thrift shop is run by workers assigned to St. Paul from the Job Center through their WEP program. They carefully sort, display the multitude of items, greet customers and clean the various rooms. They take pride in their accomplishments, knowing that they are helping people in need, as well as the church.
The shop is always in need of good, clean warm clothing, household items, curtains and blankets. Clothing is needed for women, men and especially children in all sizes. Please drop off donations on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between the hours of 9:00am-2:30pm. We would prefer to not have deliveries on Tuesdays because that's the day we have the community meal served. Please call the church office if there is a need to drop off items after 3pm, so that arrangements can be made.
In September 2019, the Stuffe Shop thrift store distributed:
Over 1500 pieces of clothing, while making $240 for the Outreach budget
