The shop provides a remarkable outreach to our parish, our community, the diocese, and beyond. All items are donated and include not only clothing, but bedding, dishes, lamps, books, luggage, furniture, jewelry, small household appliances, baby items and much more. Clothing not sold after 90 days is donated to service agencies within our community.
You can help by donating items to the shop either in the bin located in the Gallery next to the Parish Hall, or directly to the Thrift Shop. Large items such as furniture can be picked up from your home. Volunteers are needed to staff the shop. The shop is open Monday through Saturday, and the shifts are from 10:00am to 1:00pm and 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Volunteers are also needed at other times for cleaning, straightening, marking new merchandise, etc. Volunteers work in teams. You can work once a month or more often. No experience is needed; just a willing heart and a desire to help others.
The proceeds from the Thrift Shop sales benefit many different outreach projects throughout the church and in the community. The Thrift Shop’s manager is Dean Wesenberg, and the volunteer assisting management team includes John Briggs, Kathy Cole and Betty Shanks.
The Thrift Shop is located at 726 E. New Haven Avenue in historic downtown Melbourne.
