When you donate to the Metropolitan Ministries Thrift Store, you’ve taken the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of families in our community.
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 2018, 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 25,000 homeless men, women, and children in our communities. Donors also fuel them. Without this true community collaboration, so many would be left out in the cold with no hope for a future.
