Ever since Japanese author Marie Kondo’s best-seller, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” popularized a less-is-more mentality, Americans have given serious thought to how much “stuff” they really need.
If the idea of decluttering your home interests you, consider donating the clothes and items to the Precious Life Thrift Store. Sitting in the iconic red building at 3622 Florista Street, this year the store celebrates its 27th anniversary. Beyond unique merchandise, the thrift store provides 40 percent of Precious Life Shelter’s operating budget.
In addition, decluttering and donating the items and clothes to the thrift store can also help the environment. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans sent 10.5 million tons of textiles to landfills in 2015.
View the latest offerings and then shop until you drop! The thrift store is at 3622 Florista Street and open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and closed on Sunday.
You can also get behind the counter, as volunteers are needed, too. You’ll make friends with fellow volunteers and meet wonderful shoppers all while helping raise money for Precious Life.
Founded in 1982 when Theresa and Don Sherrin took four expectant homeless women into their home, the non-profit shelter has helped hundreds of homeless pregnant women to become self-reliant members of the community.
