Creating jobs to foster work skills and sustainability
BoF has two thrift stores, one located in Rockaway Beach, and the other located in Forsyth.
The thrift stores…
☑Provide meaningful income to local residents
☑Serve as an outreach to local communities for the good news of Jesus Christ
☑Give opportunities for mentors to teach work skills to youth interns as well as those who have been unemployed for a long period of time
☑ Provide quality goods for sale at low prices
The thrift stores consistently need committed volunteers who are willing to work a few hours each month to help keep the stores operating successfully. Volunteer opportunities may range from folding and sorting clothes, stocking shelves, unloading new items from trucks, cleaning, mentoring an intern, serving as a cashier,, teaching work skills to a new employee, discipleship, and other activities.
Please visit the volunteer page to fill out an application to become a thrift store volunteer. We covet and welcome your partnership and service!
Donations of gently-used clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, household items, furniture, and holiday items are welcomed at both thrift stores. We kindly ask that donations be dropped off during business hours only. Please visit the stores' Facebook pages for current operating hours. Thank you in advance for donating quality items and not items that need to be discarded due to too much use, stains, or need-to-be-mended states.
Shopping at the BoF thrift stores supports the ministries of the church. These ministries help us to spread the gospel, provide work opportunities for people in the community, and allow interns a chance to develop valuable employment skills and a resume history. When you shop at our stores, you will find brand new health and beauty items available at wholesale prices (everything from shampoo to skin care to makeup!), brand-new cleaning items (when available), household goods, vintage collectibles, clothing, a wide array of books, and much more!
