The thrift store operation consists of several various facets. It provides clothing and household supplies for homeless shelter residents (those residing and those leaving the shelter moving into a new apartment). It also provides emergency clothing and supply needs upon written referral from poor relief efforts of the Hamilton County Trustee’s offices. The general operation of the thrift store provides a low cost alternative to residents in the community with any profits made at the store being directly used to cover utility bills incurred in the Third Phase emergency homeless shelter. In addition to volunteers that operate the thrift store, there are volunteers who will pick up larger size or larger quantity of donations from the donor’s home. Contact Third Phase directly to schedule a donation “pick up” appointment.
The thrift store’s current operating hours are 1 – 5 pm each Tuesday-Saturday.
