Missouri Girl Town’s thrift store, “Yours, Mine & Ours,” will close at the end of the year and move the in-kind donation program back to campus. The primary purpose of the thrift store was to teach the girls job skills. Recently, JobPoint offered to assist in job training for our clients, helping them achieve a wide-array of marketable skills learned in a setting with similar-aged girls. JobPoint will also teach individualized skill sets and help clients in acquiring jobs. In moving the thrift store back to our campus, cost savings can be used to support our ever-increasing need for general operating funds. We are planning a reciprocal program with other thrift stores in the area to exchange non-usable donated items for clothing for our girls. In-kind items are still needed and appreciated.
Thank you for your continued generosity!
