Westminster Thrift Shop’s Mission is to provide quality, recycled merchandise at affordable prices to local families; to care for creation by providing an outlet for recycled goods. It was opened in the borough of West Chester in 1990 for the purpose of raising money to support the building fund for a new church building to be built on Pleasant Grove Road, just south of West Chester. Shortly after the first contribution was made, Session approved a motion to divide all contributions evenly between mission and the building fund. Today, all donated funds go to the Thrift Shop outreach fund. Over the course of a season, approximately 50 volunteers provide about 4,500 hours of service.
Thrift Shop Reopening Update
These past few months have been challenging for everyone, and we hope that you are safe and healthy amid the Covid-19 pandemic. The Westminster Thrift Shop Board of Directors, manager, and volunteers have been meeting, sometimes weekly, via Zoom, discussing above all, when we will be able to reopen the Westminster Thrift Shop. At the present time, a subcommittee has been reviewing guidelines of the CDC, Donegal Presbytery, and the state of Pennsylvania, in order for us to provide a safe and healthy environment for our volunteers and customers, upon reopening in September. We ask for your patience in holding your donations until we feel it is safe to donate them. In the meantime, we will provide updates via the church emails. We look forward to seeing everyone when we open in September.
