Exciting Times are in store for the Someplace Safe Thrift Stores!
Someplace Safe Thrift Stores:
Kicking Off the Campaign to Raise Funds for a New Alexandria Thrift Store
Celebrating the 5th Anniversary of the Morris Thrift Store
Our Stores.Someplace Safe Thrift Stores, located in Alexandria and Morris, help to raise funds which support the programs and services provided by Someplace Safe. The Someplace Safe Thrift Stores also provide needed clothing, household items, and furniture to victims and survivors who are in need of such items after experiencing crime or abuse. The stores also partner with local agencies to provide community members who are experiencing hardships with store vouchers in their time of need. In fact, 170 store vouchers have been issued to 476 local individuals this past year, at a value exceeding $15,000.00, making our Thrift Stores a very valuable resource to local crime victims and community members in need!
Alexandria Thrift Store Campaign: “A New Store For a New Day”. Due to the outstanding support of the community, the Someplace Safe Alexandria Thrift Store has outgrown the current store and is in need of additional space. Beginning this summer, Someplace Safe is kicking off a campaign to raise funds for the purchase of a building to permanently house the Thrift Store in the Alexandria community. The purchase of a new store will provide for a much-needed increase of space, allowing community members a store that is easy to shop, increasing the convenience of donating for community members, and providing an improved sorting area for staff and volunteers.
