The House of Concern Thrift Store and Food Pantry is an excellent place to catch some great shopping deals while supporting a community service organization. Like many thrift store it offers discounted prices for gently used items with sections for baby clothes, children’s books and games, luggage and furniture. It also has a collection of sewing patterns and scrap material that often includes resources for arts & crafts projects.
What makes this thrift store stand out is its direct connection with the food pantry it supports. Located on site at the store, the kitchen services are active in recruiting local volunteers and frequently offer workshops and trainings for community members.
So if your backpack need replacing or if you forgot your swim trunks, a quick pit-stop at the HOC will provide you with what you need and will give you a chance to support the local economy in more ways then just purchasing souvenirs.
