Monument Square District Urbana

Today's featured Monument Square District business is the Community Thrift Shop, 127 Scioto St. Store Manager: Ruth Adams
The Community Thrift Shop is sponsored by the Ministerial Association of a champaign County. When Salvation Army closed their shop in November the community expressed their concern and need for the services provided, and the Ministerial Association stepped up to take over.
The Community Thrift Shop provides several avenues of support; a kind person to listen, a referral process to appropriate services, inexpensive household goods and clothing, and, the excess stock is donated to AmVets. The proceeds from the shop sales stay in our community through a variety of services.
Besides managing the thrift shop, Ruth is retained by Salvation Army to direct services in our community such as the Christmas bell ringers, assistance with gas cards and utilities with a referral from community partners, and providing clothing and furniture which "shoppers" can "buy" in exchange for their community service.
Please support our Community Thrift Shop through donations and purchases!
