Community Involvement

We believe in being involved within the communities we serve. Often, this looks like being present at Chamber Meetings and Ribbon Cuttings to welcome new businesses in town. Another way to do this is through promoting your store during Holiday Seasons, like Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Fourth of July, Back to School, or even Canned Food Drives for the local Food Pantry.

Thank you to our Texarkana, TX store for participating with Harvest Food Pantry by being a donation site for non-perishable foods.

Also don't forget that we offer tours of our plants for each community to learn about our mission and see the impact of the donated goods in their communities.

For more information ro to schedule a tour, contact Sarah Pierce.

Local News


news stations


Each month we are featured on our local news stations; KXII and K-Ten. This is an opportunity to go deeper than our thrift stores and share success stories from our team, promote community involvement, share needs, educate viewers about our Mission and more. Recently we secured KXII News Anchor, Lauren Smith, to sport our clothing. All good stuff.

Back To School Bash!

Saturday, August 11th was the first annual Back to School Bash held at our Lamar location in Sherman, TX. Included in this fun event, the SISD Athletic Department volunteered to be dunked in our dunking booth, several vendors gave prizes and backpacks away, a face painter on-site, local law and fire departments provided safety information, McGruff the Crime Dog visited us and Texas State Republican Candidate Reggie Smith stopped by to show his support.

Not only did we have fun with our community, we saw an increase in sales of $2,000 on this day! We look forward to more events from our stores in the coming years. This event was such a success that it drew the Herald Democrat which then featured an article in the Sunday paper and both Channel 10 and 12 News that ran our story on the day of our event. This is for sure a keeper by way of events now established.
