All proceeds from Hospitality House Thrift Store sales go to benefit Hospitality House for Women Inc., a local nonprofit that serves victims of domestic violence. Last year their programs served more than 1,000 adult and child victims through the shelter and outreach in Rome and Floyd County.
During “Christmas in July,” the Thrift Store will be selling a wide variety of gently used and some new Christmas items at half price. In addition, there will be deals throughout the week on several other items, including furniture, clothing, dishes, housewares, toys, books and appliances.
The store, located at 610 Shorter Ave. next to IGA, is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
The Hospitality House Thrift Store has been a sustainable, local source of funding for the program, offsetting funding cuts from state, federal and private grant sources because of the economic recession.
“The support of the Rome-Floyd County community has really been the backbone of our efforts,” said Vicki Butler, manager at Hospitality House Thrift Store. “When unpredictable economic forces affect the shelter and other programs as drastically as they have during the current economic situation, we know we can count on the support of the local community to help us continue providing services that Rome and Floyd County need.”
