Who We Are ~ The Thrift Shop is a not-for-profit outreach ministry of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Grover Beach, California. We serve the community by recycling a wide range of donated articles. We offer clean, usable clothing, kitchenware, gifts and other items which we sort, repair and price at very reasonable prices.
Our Outreach Mission ~ Our mission is to give back to the community which supports us. Each month we make a significant donation from Thrift Shop proceeds to one of 12 local charitable organizations ~ Maxine Lewis Woman’s Shelter, Hospice Partners of the Central Coast, 5 Cities Meals on Wheels, Caring Callers, Captive Hearts, and Women’s Shelter Program, Inc. are just 6 of the 12 organizations who receive our support.
Who Receives Our Support ~ In addition to supporting charitable organizations, the Thrift Shop funds special projects at St. Barnabas Church as the need arises. The Thrift Shop also makes a substantial contribution monthly to the operating fund of the church as well as the Canterbury Campus Ministry of the Episcopal Church. Please contact us if you are part of charitable organization that might qualify for our support.
A Brief History ~ In January, 1974, the Rev. Dan McHugh led a group of St. Barnabas Parishioners in gathering clothing for the community’s needy citizens. Items were given or sold for a small fee from the basement of our church one day each week. This small operation grew into a thriving enterprise at a small, rented shop open 5 days a week. We moved to our previous location at 114 Brisco Road in Arroyo Grande in October, 1975. The building was eventually purchased by the church and was open five days a week, staffed completely by volunteers.
We are still searching for a new permanent location in the five cities area to call home.
