Donations to Threads, Hope & Love are used for the following: Building and property expenses such as; property insurance, utilities, general maintenance and repairs, parking lot repairs, yard and property care, simple gardening needs, and security lighting. Other expenses include all office supplies, including 2 laser printers and upkeep, paper, product repair parts (such as batteries, hardware, etc), laminating material, all of our production of promotional merchandise and all general supplies. Other needs are kitchen supplies with coffee/tea, basic needed items for staff and repairs if needed. The sorting room, giveaway room and storage areas needs include marking, banding, hanging, displaying, bins, racks, shelving, laundry supplies for frequent laundering, and upkeep on equipment.

Our focus is always to give our growing number of clients our respect and good quality merchandise to make their lives a bit easier in times of financial stresses. We accept donations of clothing 2 days per week (Tuesdays and Wednesdays 11 til 6) and ask that we are only given merchandise in great condition; clothing, shoes, linens, toys, house wares, books, and other things. People should never be expected to wear clothing that is torn, stained or damaged. We especially care for children and bullying can happen when a child looks ‘different’ because the clothing is poor quality and worn-out. There is enough stress in this world without causing more. If we are dressed nice, we feel better about ourselves. And it gives parents one less thing to worry about.

As we go into 2016, the news of more lay-offs, companies shutting down and prices continue to go up as the incomes go down, we are there. We understand.

If you are truly in need of help, come to us and we will help you get what you need to clothe your family. Please don’t come in just because you are able to get something free. The need is very high and we want to have enough for all that need help.

As of today, all of our faithful Kroger shoppers can add Threads, Hope & Love NFP to their Kroger Plus card and a portion of what you spend, goes to Threads to help us with our monthly expenses and building maintenance. It's very simple and you must do it online. 
(If you are one of the Crossroads Outreach supporters on your Kroger Plus, that does NOT include Threads. It is mission trips only.) I don’t want anyone to think we are getting funds from 2 separate programs through Kroger.
If you don't have a Kroger Plus, you can do that online too.
We truly appreciate your support to keep this mission moving smoothly. Our mortgage is paid but we feel that there will be a new calling to add to our current services soon. Thank you so much!!!! Without your help, we can't help those in need.
