Family & Children’s Services will mark the grand opening of the Family & Children’s Services Thrift Store, located at 724 S. Utica, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, October 5. The Tulsa Regional Chamber will be present for the event scheduled to take place at 10:30 am.
While Tulsa gains an exciting new option for shoppers looking for cost-effective, quality clothing and household items, the thrift store helps Family & Children’s Services diversity funding for one in six Tulsans seeking mental health, substance abuse and family services.
“In a climate filled with uncertain financial support for services, the Family & Children’s Services Thrift Store was created with a three-part mission,” said Director of Communications Dee Harris. “Sales help support services and programs for our community while providing work opportunities for our Women in Recovery and other F&CS clients. Finally, the thrift store will give goods to F&CS clients in need. Last year, alone, we served over 114,000 individuals.”
Tulsa County donors interested in donating to the thrift store can drop off goods or call for a pickup. “We are happy to take away your goods for good,” said Harris.
