Thrift Shop a blessing to community
The Trinity Thrift Shop, 104 South Church Street, opened in 1990 to support charitable organizations in Shepherdstown and Jefferson County. Because of generous donated items and the many patrons of the Shop, it has contributed more than $240,000 to the community over the years.
Financial contributions have been made to such organizations as the Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department, Jefferson County Community Ministries, Shepherdstown Day Care Center, Good Shepherd Caregivers, the Rescue Mission, Hospice of the Eastern Panhandle, Eastern Panhandle Free Clinic, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), and the Shenandoah Women’s Shelter.
The winter clothing line is now available for women, men and children. Other items for sale include jewelry, books, movies, toys, kitchen and other house wares, prints, knick knacks and holiday objects. It is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The community’s generosity in providing the Thrift Shop with donated items is greatly appreciated. The Shop accepts donations of clothing, books, jewelry and many other items. It also collects used eye glasses on behalf of the Lion’s Club. The Thrift Shop cannot accept furniture, other large items and electronics due to limited space. Contributions may be delivered to the screened-in back porch at any time. Tax receipts are available during business hours.
