Have you been saving up "treasures" in your basement or garage to donate to Adelante Thrift? If so, you're a part of an exciting ground-swell of support for this new sustainable ministry project in KCK! Soon, you and many others will have a few options for dropping off your donations and seeing your "treasures" become community transformation!
On January 15th we took possession of the thrift store space so we could begin transforming what has been a vacant and deteriorating commercial space into a thriving neighborhood business. With permit in hand, our construction process has begun with demo work and is projected to be complete by February 20th; a pretty tight timeline, but within reach according to our physical space team!
Demo began on the Adelante Thrift site on January 15th. We're on track for a March 14th opening day!
As we prepare the store for a March 14th opening day, there are a few earlier options for those who are anxious to clear their basements of accumulating "treasures" and help provide the initial inventory for Adelante Thrift.
Church Donation Drives: A few partner churches are hosting donation drives at their churches before the store opens. They have agreed to receive donations, during specific hours, on specific dates, for Adelante Thrift. If you attend or live near one of these churches, you may contact the point person for those donation drives to find out more about dropping off donations at their sites.
