Value and Values at Federated Church Thrift Shop
Above, the Federated Church team staffing the Thrift Shop on Wednesday afternoon: Jane Sveden, Carol Malachowski, Stephanie Potts, and Susan Borchard.
The historic Federated Church, located across from the High Street end of the Town Common recently established a new thrift store offering clothing for men, women, and children, offering great values (like $3 for a like-new man's dress shirt) as well as a chance to support values like environmental-friendly reuse and support for folks on a budget.
According to the Church website, the THRIFT SHOP, a mission of the Franklin Federated Church, [and is] is being established to support our covenant to be “A Community of Abundant Welcome to All, Growing Together in Christ and Serving with Love.”
We want to provide affordable clothing to the local community. Our church supports many mission projects like the Franklin Food Pantry, Gilly House, and Common Cathedral in Boston as well as donations to charities to support families in need like New Hope in Attleboro. We view this volunteer run, donation-based shop as another way to serve and give back to the community.
Donations will be accepted while the THRIFT SHOP is open with the following guidelines:
- Clothing with no rips, stains, or tears
- Clothing must be laundered; soiled clothing is not saleable
- If possible, please bring clothing on hangers
- Please wait until March to bring in summer items and September for winter items
- We deeply appreciate your donations and your cooperation in helping us help our neighbors.
- All proceeds are used for the work of the Franklin Federated Church to continue our work with the THRIFT SHOP and our Service to the community.
If that's not good enough, there is an upcoming sale!
