Then the Mission Committee invited the gardeners and farmers in our area to bring their extra produce and sell it on the town square. This became such a success that clothing and household items began to be donated to the committee for resale and the operation moved to the church basement.
The committee set a goal of $1,200 to establish a Christian Learning Center adjacent to Gilmer High School. Donations poured in and the goal for the Christian Learning Center became a reality. This small endeavor grew into helping the needy Gilmer County citizens.
“Volunteers Serving the Community with Compassion and Understanding while Providing Hope to those in Need”
Our facility on Maddox Drive became too small. We needed more floor space for merchandise and a larger parking lot. We purchased 24,000 sq. feet of space and moved into our present facility in March of 2006. We started out using 16,000 sq. feet of space and then expanded to allow for a separate area for assistance interviews and more sorting and pricing room. In November of 2008, we opened a warehouse annex in our remaining space to house furniture, large appliances, and building materials.
ALL monies after expenses go to assist the needy of Gilmer County. We strive to increase the quality of life of our fellow Gilmer County citizens with our money and provide a place to shop for clothes and household items at greatly reduced prices.
