The Helping Hands Thrift Store is open for business.
The store’s first official day open to the public was March 10.
“When we got here at 9:30 a.m. there were people waiting to get in,” said Rev. Wil Jones, co-chair of the Helping Hands Board of Directors.
Helping Hands was formed 24 years ago in an effort to organize volunteers from churches in the community who wanted to assist families with food, clothing, furniture and cash when available.
About 15 of the more than 70 churches in Grant County actively support the organization.
