New Charity Needs Generous Donations to continue helping Houston's homeless addicts.
The Big Charity Sale (Thrift Store & Men's Shelter) in S.W. Houston (14110 South Post Oak)takes a refreshing new approach to helping those in need.
"No handouts here" The men coming off the streets to recover from their addictions, help to offset the cost of their housing and treatment by working in the charity's thrift store. The Big Charity Sale's Center for Recovery provides men (who are ready to change) with the housing, food, clothing, job training and resources necessary for them to recover from their addictions and become productive members of society.
Inside the Big Charity Sale Thrift Store, founders Virginia Bowen and Leland Smith work along side the men they help, to create the attractive environment of a well stocked, well organized department store providing a positive experience for the men they serve. Virginia Bowen comments, "I feel that it is extremely important for guys to leave the Big Charity Sale's Center for Recovery feeling better about themselves and well equiped to remain sober and productive."
Members of the community benefit as well. The Thrift Store supporting the center offers name brand clothing for 99 cents, groceries at 70% below retail and home decor/furnishings at extremely low prices.
Vice President Leland Smith believes " The men begin to gain the valuable self worth needed to recover by working in this environment which geared towards helping those in need."
The Big Charity Sale is presently in need of financial gifts, non-perishable food, clothing, furniture, appliances, left-over garage sale lots, home dÃ©cor, automobiles, housing quarters etc... in order to continue.
