Donations for the Free Store

We accept donations of gently used clothing and household items.  Donations are accepted Tuesdays 9am-10am, Wednesdays 9am-4pm, Fridays 12pm-2pm or by appointment.

Due to space limitations, we ask that you please call the church to arrange donations of large furniture.

About the Free Store and Fresh Market

The Free Store and Fresh Market provides gently used clothing, household items, and fresh produce to individuals and families in a hospitable atmosphere that affirms the self-worth of each individual.  We have organized separate shopping areas for children's clothes, toys, and other items as well as an area for household items, women's and men's clothing.  Additionally, we have a produce market where our old chapel used to be where people can shop for free, fresh, and healthy foods for their families.  Our Fresh Market provides free produce and grocery items to the community and is another way we live out our vision of healthy homes and holy hearts for all people.
