Helping the community

Our Souled Out Community Thrift Store recently held its second-annual “Take What You Need, Pay What You Can Sale.”

Our motivation was to help our neighbors with their back-to-school shopping. Our sale generated some rumors that we are closing our store, which we found puzzling at first. Then, we realized it was thought our sale was simply too good to be true.

We at Souled Out are dedicated to our community; that is what drives our operations, and so we chose to return blessings to those who bless us.

It is our joy to donate roughly $500 every three months directly back to our community, be it the food pantry, fire department or needy family.

We have been amazed that although we sell none of our gently used clothing for more than $2, we have been so blessed.

Also, we have partnered with Panera bakery and give away free premium baked goods during normal store hours, 1 to 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Of course, free prayers and God’s love are always in generous supply from our dedicated volunteers; stop by and enjoy at 20 Blackman Corners Road in Mooers Forks, just a “stone’s throw” from U.S. 11 or follow us on Facebook.

P.S. All our clothes are meticulously sorted, sized and hung on clothing racks for the communities’ convenience.
