PONTIAC, Mich., March 18, 2013 – All proceeds from the sale of donated items will be used to support Grace Centers of Hope’s Emergency Shelter, One-Year Life Skills, After Care and Children’s Programs for homeless men, women and children.
“Spring cleaning is a wonderful time of year to help Grace Centers of Hope without having to open a check book and give a monetary donation,” said Pastor Clark, CEO of Grace Centers of Hope. “Unwanted household items that can be resold at our thrift stores greatly support our mission and truly make a difference throughout the year, especially since we accept no government funding.”
Grace Centers of Hope Thrift Stores are located in Oak Park, Sterling Heights, Warren, and Waterford.
The stores accept a wide variety of items, including men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes and accessories, furniture, small and large appliances, household items, toys, sports equipment and any items in bulk.
Donations can be dropped off at Grace Centers of Hope located at 35 W. Huron St. in Pontiac or at each store location. Large donations, such as furniture or multiple bags of items, can be scheduled for a truck pick up within Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties. To schedule a pick up, call (855) 435-7424.
