Westminster Thrift Shop Reopening September 9 Celebrating its 25th Season

On Saturday August 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., we will be having a church drop-off.  Volunteers and board members will be on hand to assist you with your donations.  We are in need of fall clothing, accessories, jewelry, shoes, housewares, small appliances, small furniture, books, games, videos, CD's and DVD's for our fall start-up. 

Donations are always welcome in the shop starting September 2 (during shop hours) or can be left in the church (in the Thrift Shop bins located in the storeroom in Spellman Hall).  For larger donations or if you require assistance or have any questions as to what we accept please contact Karen Koepke, manager at 610-692-9298 or Diane DeSieno-Lane at 610-701-5434. We truly appreciate all the wonderful donations we receive.

When you are in church visit our display cabinet in the coffee/worship and arts area and check out some of the lovely items on sale at the shop as well as examples of the types of items we sell.  

We are always in need of Volunteers.  If you are looking for a ministry at Westminster to get involved consider the outreach ministry of the Thrift Shop.  For more information on volunteer opportunities at the Thrift Shop contact Karen Koepke at 610-692-9298 or Diane DeSieno-Lane at 610-701-5434.

The Thrift Shop starts its 25th season on Tuesday, September 9.  We continue our mission of serving many underprivileged families in West Chester by providing clothing, household and furniture items at low prices. We are very excited to announce that last fall we were able to donate $5,000 to Outreach through the Thrift Shop mission fund.  We were also excited that we were able to donate $5,000 to the Endowment fund. This was only possible because of the generous donations we receive and the hard work of our dedicated volunteers. We have certainly been blessed with tremendous congregational support. Thank you for remembering the shop when cleaning out your closets, basements, attics and garages and supporting this vital ministry.
