Buckhead THRIFTique In Need of Donations

June 24, 2010 - PRLog -- ATLANTA – Buckhead THRIFTique, Buckhead Christian Ministry’s thrift store, is seeking donations to restock its shelves. Without donations from the Atlanta community, the THRIFTique will be unable to continue distributing vouchers to more than 400 people each month. With these vouchers, the THRIFTique gives nearly $8,000 worth of free clothing to people in need monthly.

“Buckhead THRIFTique provides clothing to people who otherwise wouldn’t have appropriate attire for school, work or interviews,” says Robyn Hazelrigs, store manager. “Through the THRIFTique, Buckhead Christian Ministry is able to help people get and keep jobs, or feel confident on their first day of school.”

The THRIFTique provides free clothing to people in crisis and sells affordable clothing to the Atlanta community. Items not given or sold to customers are donated to missions efforts around the world. Any profits are used by BCM to prevent hunger and homelessness for Atlantans in crisis.

Clean, gently used clothing, small electronics and household items can be donated Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., at the store’s new location: 800 Miami Circle, Suite 160, Atlanta, GA 30324.  BCM is a 501(c)3 charity; all donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Volunteers are also needed to assist customers and help people in need select clothing for interviews and everyday wear. Volunteers sort and price clothes, arrange displays and operate the cash register. Training is provided for all volunteer jobs, and time commitments can be as little as three hours per month. To volunteer, contact Lacy Kerkhof at (404) 239-0058, ext. 111 or lacykerkhof@bcmatlanta.org.

To find the THRIFTique at its new location, turn onto Miami Circle (between Mercedes Benz of Buckhead and Buckhead Crossing Shopping Center) from Piedmont Road. Drive .3 miles. Turn left at the driveway immediately after Ashore Ironworks and pass under the metal archway. Buckhead THRIFTique is on the right at the back of the parking lot.
