Thrift Shop Grand Opening!
We have opened the doors to our new thrift shop on September 15, 2015! Our new thrift shop is located at 426 East Main Street, Patchogue NY 11772.
On September 13th 2015, I was sitting at my desk looking at the pantry shelves thinking we really really need to do a food drive because the shelves were almost bare. We were continuing to feed and serve those in need while we were searching for a place and while packing and moving, we didn’t have time to request food donations besides here on Facebook (thanks to those who faithfully continue to come through for the community once again). As John and I were driving from Farmingdale to Patchogue we got the most peculiar but blessed phone call ever. Paula Jennings was on the other end asking if they could donate over 2,000 items to Help For People, Inc. She was concerned about the greatest need of the public and in 3 hours about 7 car loads of about 26 beautiful angels (people) unloading soooo many bags and cases of items for the pantry with the biggest smiles and hugs and blessings :).
An amazing overwhelming feeling or gratefulness we felt lead to tears of joy. They exceeded their goal of 2000 items with over 3.500 items… as you will see in the photo. We are thankful to God this crazy bunch of folks and everyone who have been behind us since day one. And a special Big thanks to Laborers in Christ church/ministry for blessing our new building and supporting us and praying for us always.
Here are some pictures of our new store front!
See you soon!
