Local treasure hunters have found a new hot spot for one-of-a-kind bargains. Crystal, designer clothing, unique home dÃ©cor, quality furniture and more are attracting Houstonians to a new charity resale shop.
Customers are finding fantastic deals while helping low income families.
The Big Charity Sale in S.W. Houston takes a refreshing new approach to helping those in need.
Many charities in the Houston area serve the homeless and the unemployed who are unable to provide food and clothing for their families. However, charitable assistance can be much more difficult to find for employed members of our community suffering through similar hardships. Often, low income families attempting to stretch their budgets by shopping at thrift stores find even those prices beyond their means. Appeals to various charities for help may be turned down because they are employed or have inadequate documentation of their need.
The Big Charity Sale located at the corner of South Post Oak and Heatherbrook offers one solution for these issues. Charitable programs, including free and low cost groceries, clothing, baby items and household essentials, provide much needed relief to local families. Store Manager Bruce Sage states, ÂWe do not ask for qualifications, there are no embarrassing questions or complicated forms. Everyone is welcome here - our goal is to serve the community in a way that preserves the dignity of those in need.Â
Inside, founders Virginia Bowen and Leland Smith work hard to create the attractive environment of a well stocked, well organized department store providing a positive experience for the families they serve. Virginia Bowen comments, ÂI feel that it is extremely important for people to leave the Big Charity Sale feeling better about themselves and more confident in their ability to provide for their families.Â
The Big Charity Sale is made possible by generous donations of non-perishable food, clothing, furniture, appliances, left-over garage sale lots, home dÃ©cor etc... - collected daily by their prompt, scheduled pickup service. Donation arrangements can be made by calling 832-628-6014, 713-471-6150 or by visiting their website at http://www.bigcharitysale.com
