When you donate to the Metropolitan Ministries Thrift Store, you’ve taken the opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of individuals living in your community, lives like Rose.
After you drop off your shirts, shoes, blankets, electronics and other items, we sell them in our store on Florida Ave. When someone buys your item, we use that money to fund the programs Metropolitan Ministries offers to hurting people.
As a social enterprise of Metropolitan Ministries, our Thrift Store provides support to the ongoing mission of the Ministries through services that alleviate suffering, promote dignity and instill self-sufficiency.
Maximizing the value of your donations is important to us. In 2014, we used 85 percent of the revenue generated through your donated items to support and grow programs including; meals, shelter, family counseling, education and youth enrichment.
These services are vital for the 25,000 homeless men, women and children in our communities. They’re also fueled by donors. Without this true community collaboration, so many would be left out in the cold . . . with no hope for a future.
