Charities Receiving Outreach Proceeds

Mission Hospice

The Thrift Shop has made its home in the basement of St. Matthew’s since 1949 and resells donated items at a very low price. Our operation provides the principle source of income for the League for Service, which is disbursed to local, regional and national charities. The shop is staffed entirely by volunteers, most of whom are also parishioners. We welcome donations of gently used clothing, jewelry, small furniture items, household goods and children’s toys.

If you would like to volunteer at the shop or have questions about donating items, please contact Diana Dykes, Thrift Shop Manager, at
