In our continued effort to address the most pressing needs in Central Oregon's communities, we have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to engage students who experience varying abilities at our Thrift Store in Madras. During the school year, these students and other high school students learn work skills and earn high school credit while volunteering their time at our store. They learn retail and customer service skills along with countless other soft workplace skills, preparing them for future employment opportunities. 

Grand Reopening Announcement: The Thrift Store will begin to reopen the week of July 6th with a Grand Reopening Event on Saturday, July 10th.   Mark it on your calendar, we hope you will be able to join us that day!
