The New Beginnings Thrift Store at 35 State Street, just up the street from the downtown business district is not just a place for great bargains on gently used merchandise including clothing and household goods. Each purchase helps benefit those in need.
We sometimes hear that folks don’t want to by items from the Thrift store because they fear it might be taking something away that someone with a greater need could use. The truth is, we have plenty of inventory and no one will miss out.
On the contrary, your purchase at New Beginnings makes it possible to stock our food pantry shelves. Last year those purchases – which are often 25 cents, 50 cents, or $1 or $2 – added up to over $60,000 we could use to support those in need. It really does make a huge difference and helps us put food on the table for thousands of folks right here in Seneca County.
We like to think of it as putting our money where people’s mouths are.
