THRIFT SHOP HISTORY
Pak Ratz Thrift Shop was created in 1995 for the use of residents in the shelter, Harbor House, to obtain needed clothing and household items. Today the store is open to the public and offers gently used men’s, women’s and children’s clothing as well as furniture, household items, kitchen ware, toys and other necessities. In keeping with its original intent, the Women’s Center still provides vouchers to shelter residents and non-residential clients to purchase anything in the store.
Today, net proceeds from the store go to support the many Women’s Center’s programs. Pak Ratz Thrift Shop helps us keep our lights on! It is vital to providing extra revenue that we desperately need to sustain programs. When people donate items or shop here, they are supporting life-saving needed services in our community.
Your donations to Pak Ratz Thrift Shop are so important. When our stores are filled, we provide a complete selection for thrifty shoppers and those who have found themselves in a difficult situation. And just as important, those shopping dollars stay right here in our community!
