Pam Peeling, coordinator of Catholic Charities’ Step By Step program, which oversees the Thrift Store, said that proceeds from this special pricing event would benefit the agency’s community service programs, which include the food pantry, emergency services, and the CYO program.

“Our Thrift Store is an excellent resource that not only provides families with an affordable option for clothing, household items, furniture, and even appliances when available, but also allows us to provide food for those in need through our food pantry and recreational activities for our youth through our CYO program,” said Peeling.

Additionally, Peeling said that the Thrift Store currently has several computers in stock that include the tower, monitor and keyboard.  “It’s a great opportunity to purchase a computer at a very affordable price and help support our food pantry, emergency services and the CYO program,” said Peeling.

Located inside Catholic Charities offices at 365 West First Street in Fulton, Catholic Charities’ Thrift Store is open Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:30 to 7 p.m.; Wednesdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
